CRP Water Quality Advisory Committee General Information
Clean Rivers Program
The program goals are as follows;  Encourage comprehensive and cooperative watershed planning; Enhance public participation and outreach; Maintain a basin-wide water quality monitoring program; Provide a scientific response to water quality problems; Identify, analyze, and report on water quality issues and potential causes of pollution.
The Texas Clean Rivers Program is a state fee funded water quality monitoring, data assessment and public outreach program administered by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ).

The program is coordinated through the TCEQ and regional water authorities.  The UCRA has partnered with the Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA) Clean Rivers Program since the early 90's as the lead agency for the Upper Colorado River Basin.  UCRA staff monitors stream segments within the basin and data is submitted to LCRA.   The current two year contract cycle began on September 1, 2019. 

The Clean Rivers Program plays an integral part in improvement of water quality for the upper basin.  The program encourages local stakeholder participation which ensures that current issues are continually brought to the forefront.  As a result of active stakeholder participation, UCRA's Upper Basin Water Quality Advisory Committee has been very successful in identifying specific water quality issues in order to create measures to address those needs.
