Buck Creek Watershed Partnership recognized with Texas Environmental Excellence Award

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has announced the winners of the 21st annual Texas Environmental Excellence Awards, a statewide honor that recognizes 10 projects that demonstrate positive effects on air, water, and land resources. The Texas Water Resources Institute and Texas A&M AgriLife have been selected as the winner of the award in the agriculture category for the Buck Creek Watershed Partnership.

Created by the Texas Legislature in 1993, the awards honor individuals, organizations, and businesses that protect our state’s human and natural resources while ensuring clean air, clean water, and the safe management of waste, according to TCEQ officials. TCEQ commissioners will present the awards to the winners at a banquet, to be held May 1, as part of the TCEQ Environmental Trade Fair and Conference at the Austin Convention Center, April 30–May 1.
