Status and Activities

Execution of the original implementation plan was led by the Northeast Texas Municipal Water DistrictExit the TCEQ in partnership with stakeholders in the region. Assessment in 2016 indicated that conditions have improved; however, dissolved oxygen concentrations remain below the criteria for support of aquatic life in the upper 3,700 acres of the lake. Status of TMDL implementation is available in the latest Cypress Creek Basin Highlights ReportExit the TCEQ on the Water District’s website.

The Texas Water Resources Institute (TWRI) worked with stakeholders to evaluate their implementation progress and revise their plan. In 2014, the stakeholders prepared a revision to the original implementation plan to continue their efforts in improving local water quality.
