We coordinate projects directed toward implementing the watershed protection plan and restoring the Arroyo Colorado.
We have worked with watershed stakeholders and others to develop a watershed protection plan that includes management recommendations for E. coli sources that are practical to manage and acceptable to stakeholders.
We are addressing the E. coli impairment within the Big Elm Creek watershed by supplementing an existing dataset with bacteria and flow data for later decision making by stakeholders.
We are working with the San Antonio River Authority and stakeholders to develop and implement a watershed protection plan.
TWRI is working with local stakeholders and state agencies in the Mission and Aransas rivers watersheds, the two primary freshwater contributors to Copano Bay watershed.
We are working with others to restore and maintain water quality of the Leon River to meet state water quality standards.
We are working with communities within Matagorda Basin watersheds to address water quality concerns.
We are collecting water quality data and educating local stakeholders on the water quality concerns in these watersheds.
We are working with watershed stakeholders to address water quality concerns and improve watershed health and function.
We are working with communities within Angelina and Neches Basin watersheds to address water quality concerns.
We are working with Texas A&M University and the University of Texas Health Science Center to expand the Texas E. coli BST library to enable identification of E. coli sources statewide.
Since 2003, the Ogallala Aquifer Program (OAP) has provided permanent federal funding to a research consortium for numerous research projects on water conservation.
The Ogallala Water CAP is a multi-disciplinary collaborative effort, focused on developing and sharing practical, science-supported information relevant to best management practices for optimizing water use across the Ogallala region.
The Diversifying the Water Portfolio for Agriculture in the Rio Grande Basin, a Coordinated Agriculture Project (CAP), seeks to explore various water management strategies by evaluating the use of alternative technologies to identify the most efficient and cost-effective use of water.
The Transboundary Water Portal is a data center created by the Texas Water Resources Institute to integrate and share data related to transboundary surface water and groundwater resources between Mexico and the United States.
The Healthy Lawns and Healthy Waters Program aims to improve and protect surface water quality by enhancing awareness and knowledge of best management practices for residential landscape.
These trainings work to facilitate the promotion of healthy watersheds and improve water quality through the delivery of riparian and stream ecosystem education programs with a focus on priority watersheds.
We provide training and promote sustainable proactive approaches to managing water quality throughout the state.
The Texas Well Owner Network educates private well owners about potential pollutant sources and what steps can be taken to lessen potential impacts from these sources.
This program offers professionals interested in restoration activities training on urban stream functions, impacts of development on urban streams and recognizing healthy versus degraded stream systems.
TWRI is committed to training the next generation of water resources scientists and engineers. We have two water research scholarship programs, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Graduate Research Program and the Mills Scholars Program.
