The Texas Clean Rivers Program (CRP) was implemented to maintain and improve the quality of surface water resources within each river basin in Texas. The CRP is a partnership involving the TCEQ, other state agencies, river authorities, local governments, industry, and citizens. Using a watershed management approach, CRP partner agencies work with the TCEQ to identify and evaluate surface water quality issues and to establish priorities for corrective action. The CRP provides a vehicle for local, regional, and statewide interests to examine water quality issues on a watershed basis. Planning and management by watershed allows the examination of complex relationships between water resources and human activity. The water quality assessments performed under the CRP focus on the cumulative effects of a variety of potential pollutant sources within the context of the natural setting of a particular watershed.
