Renewed Project

Water Quality Education for Hood County, Texas

This project is a continuation of previously funded educational efforts that have focused on engaging and providing critical information to stakeholders and landowners on and near Lake Granbury. This project will provide an assessment of existing and potential water quality threats related to nonpoint source water pollution within the watershed. The Texas Water Resources Institute and Texas AgriLife Extension Service will also assist the Brazos River Authority and Texas Commission on Environmental Quality in developing a watershed protection plan to improve and protect water quality within the Brazos River Basin. Key objectives of this project include holding public meetings to educate stakeholders and clients within the watershed about water quality and its protection, providing public educational programs to help achieve improved water quality, and conducting training events on proper operation and maintenance of on-site wastewater treatment systems and collection facilities.
