Tres Palacios Creek: Coordinating Implementation

A project to support a wide range of implementation measures for the Tres Palacios Watershed Protection Plan (WPP); primarily outreach, education, and water quality monitoring.


Tres Palacios Creek, in Matagorda County, flows into Matagorda Bay. Since 2006, its tidal segment has been listed as impaired (not meeting Water Quality Standards) due to high levels of fecal bacteria and low levels of dissolved oxygen. The Texas Institute for Applied Environmental Research  and the Texas Water Resources Institute (TWRI) developed a watershed protection plan, in cooperation with stakeholders, to address these impairments.
