New Project

Modeling Support for Little Brazos River Tributaries

Eleven segments of the central Brazos River Watershed are on the state’s 303(d) list of impaired waters for bacterial contamination. This project will build on and work with other projects dealing with bacterial contamination of watersheds in Texas. Texas A&M University’s Biological and Agricultural Engineering Department, with assistance from the Brazos River Authority will conduct a load duration curve analysis of water quality monitoring data to determine needed reductions in bacterial pollution and will conduct watershed modeling to estimate amounts of bacteria pollution coming from different sources.

Principal Collaborators: Texas Water Resources Institute, Texas AgriLife Research, Texas A&M University’s Spatial Sciences Laboratory, Robertson County Soil and Water Conservation District, Brazos River Authority

Funding Agency: Texas State Soil and Water Conservation Board
