Project Goals/Objectives: The long-term goal of this project is to support program implementation efforts of the Texas State and Water Conservation Board and the Nueces SWCD to protect and restore the water quality of Oso Bay and Creek from agricultural nonpoint source pollution. Short-term goals are (a) the assessment of runoff-related loadings of nutrients, selected inorganic ions, suspended sediments, and bacteria (Enterococcus) from the Oso Creek watershed and (b) a better understanding of the role of these runoff-related loadings on the dynamics of water quality properties in these water bodies.
