Authors: T.A. Berthold, A. Gregory
The focus of Texas State Soil and Water Conservation Board (TSSWCB) Project 10-11, “Implementing Educational Components of the Arroyo Colorado WPP Focused on Agricultural NPS Pollution”, was to continue efforts to alleviate impairments in the Arroyo Colorado watershed through educational programs and direct mailings targeted at controlling agricultural nonpoint source pollution. Texas Water Resources Institute (TWRI) and Texas AgriLife Extension Service (Extension) conducted educational programs within the three county area of the Arroyo Colorado watershed focused on best management practices (BMPs), nutrient management, and sources of financial and technical assistance. The continuation of these vital programs was made possible by funding from a Clean Water Act Section 319(h) grant from the Texas State Soil and Water Conservation Board (TSSWCB) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
