The overall goal for this project was to provide a mechanism to educate local stakeholders about water quality issues that affect Lake Granbury. This project provided an assessment of existing and potential water quality threats related to on-going non-point source (NPS) water pollution within the Lake Granbury Watershed. The Texas Water Resources Institute (TWRI) and Texas AgriLife Extension Service are assisting Brazos River Authority (BRA) and Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) to develop a Watershed Protection Plan (WPP) aimed to improve and protect water quality within the Brazos River Basin. Educational information developed during this project provided Federal, State and local decision makers with a variety of mechanisms that can be employed to prevent additional degradation of water quality in the watershed.
