Deer and Pond Creeks Continued Surface Water Quality Monitoring and Education Effectiveness

Project Goals/Objectives: Due to a lack of water quality data available for Deer Creek and Pond Creek, additional surface water quality monitoring data is necessary to provide a good foundation for future watershed planning and implementation activities. Additionally, expanded data collection will allow for a more accurate assessment of the waterbodies’ conditions and aid in identifying potential causes and sources of pollution. It is through monitoring and adequate data that watershed managers will be able to get a true assessment of water quality and water quality inhibitors. To fully understand and appreciate the scope of the impairment, it is imperative that monthly sampling occurs within the watersheds. Monthly sampling will allow data gaps to be filled and will improve analysis in the watersheds.

Project Location: Deer Creek watershed in Falls, McLennan, and Bell counties. Pond Creek watershed in Falls, Milam, and Bell counties.

Project Costs: $130,831

Project Partners: Texas A&M AgriLife Research, TWRI

Project Workplan: 22-51
