Authors: V. Gutierrez, K. Wagner, A. Berthold
The focus of Texas State Soil and Water Conservation Board (TSSWCB) Project 15-53, “Delivering Education Programs Focused on Stakeholder Needs to Address Agricultural NPS in the Arroyo Colorado Watershed,” 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. The Texas Water Resources Institute (TWRI) and Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service (Extension) conducted educational programs within the three county area of the Arroyo Colorado watershed that focused on best management practices (BMPs), particularly soil testing and nutrient management, and sources of financial and technical assistance. The continuation of these vital programs was made possible by funding from a State Nonpoint Source Program grant from the TSSWCB.
