Water-Quality Standards and Criteria Water-quality standards for streams and coastal waters in Texas have been published by the Texas Water Quality Board (a). These standards consist of three parts: 1. General criteria applicable to all surface waters of the State at . Reconnaissance of the Quality of Surface Water in the San Rafael River Basin, Utah | Local Phone Coal and Coalbed Methane (49) Tar Sands and Oil Shale (25) Uinta Basin Studies (13) Ferron Sandstone Studies (15) Green River Formation (8) Oil and Gas (64) Minerals and Mining (3) Gold (13) Rocks, Minerals, and Fossils (41) Mining (26). Water-resources data for the water year for Texas are presented in six volumes, and consist of records of stage, discharge, and water quality of streams and canals; stage, contents, and water-quality of lakes and reservoirs; and water levels and water quality of ground-water wells. Volume 4 contains records for water discharge at 61 gaging stations; stage only at 1 gaging station; stage. at 4, feet, the Brazos River in Running Water Draw at about the same elevation, and the Colorado River in Sulfur Draw at about 4, feet. The eight other Texas river basins originate within Texas. The Canadian and the Red Rivers have their outlets, or pour points, beyond Texas. Our remaining 11 river basins spill into the Gulf of Mexico.

The roles of the Texas Clean Rivers Program and the Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission (TNRCC) in water quality management and their histories are discussed in this report. Water quality summaries (assessments and methodology) by Texas river basin are also discussed followed by a list of the actual water quality assessments by Texas. The Lavaca River is located on the coastal prairie lying north of the San Antonio-Matagorda bay area. Headwaters originate in southern Fayette County and flow through Lavaca and Jackson Counties into Lavaca Bay. Approximately 60% of the basin is drained by the Navidad River and its tributaries. The basin drainage area is 2, square miles. GUADALUPE RIVER BASIN and the LAVACA-GUADALUPE COASTAL BASIN Spring This report highlights recent activities in the Guadalupe and Lavaca-Guadalupe River Basins under the Clean Rivers Program (CRP). The Texas CRP is managed by the Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission (TNRCC), and funded entirely by fees assessed to wastewater. McCann B. River water quality assessed. Water l.

The kinds and quantities of minerals dissolved in the surface water of the Neches River basin result from such environmental factors as geology, streamflow patterns and characteristics, and industrial influences.

As a result of high rainfall in the basin, much of the readily soluble material has been leached from the surface rocks and soils.

The Sabine River basin has an abundant surface water of excellent quality. The basin area of 9, square miles receives an average of about 48 inches of rainfall per year, of which about 13 inches flows to the Gulf of Mexico.

Variations in the chemical quality of the surface waters in the Sabine River basin are caused principally by areal differences in geology and runoff; but.

The report serves to develop a greater understanding of water quality conditions in the river basin. It also serves to enhance the ability to make decisions regarding water quality issues. The report is compiled every five years.
