Texas Clean River Act
Water Quality in Texas
The Texas Clean River Act (Senate Bill 818) requires that ongoing water quality assessments be conducted for each river basin in Texas, an approach that integrates water quality issues within the watershed.

The Clean Rivers Program legislation mandates that each river authority (or local governing entity) shall submit quality-assured data collected in the river basin to the commission.

Quality-Assured Data

Quality-assured data means data that comply with commission rules for surface water quality monitoring programs, including rules governing the methods under which water samples are collected and analyzed and data from those samples are assessed and maintained. The Regional Quality Assurance Project Plan (QAPP) has been developed between the H-GAC and the TCEQ to carry out the activities mandated by the legislation.
