Lake Granbury and Bosque River Assessment Final Scientific/Technical Report, C.A. Jones, Texas Water Resources Institute Report TR-350, 2008

The "Texas A&M University - Lakes Granbury and Waco, and Bosque River Assessment" project was developed to address two separate water quality issues in Central Texas. Lake Granbury and the Bosque River both serve vital roles in the Brazos River watershed. Lake Granbury is a reservoir constructed on the main stem of the Brazos River in Hood County, Texas, and provides a potable water supply for over 250,000 area residents, cooling water for a natural gas fired and a nuclear power plant, vital flood control for the city of Waco and a critical economic stimulus for surrounding areas. The Bosque River, also in the Brazos River watershed, plays a vital role in Central Texas as well; it feeds Lake Waco and supplies water for 200,000 Central Texans. Each area of the project focused on addressing specific water quality issues in a specific water body, but each will provide valuable information that can be used to correct water quality concerns in other watersheds with similar problems. Ultimately, this project will result in improved water quality for consumptive, recreational, and industrial uses, and will help to sustain the economic stimulus resulting from these water bodies.
