Arroyo Colorado Watershed Protection Plan: Tracking and Inventory of Septic Systems

A project to develop a watershed-wide septic system database.

Background

Since 1996 the Texas Integrated Report has listed the Arroyo Colorado Tidal segment as impaired (not meeting water quality standards) for dissolved oxygen. The Arroyo Colorado Watershed Partnership developed the Arroyo Colorado Watershed Protection Plan in 2007, and updated it in 2017, to guide the restoration of water quality in this segment.
