Continuous Water Quality and Discharge Monitoring at Selected Sites in Texas

For this project the U.S. Geological Survey's Texas Water Science Center is conducting continuous water quality monitoring at selected sites on the Rio Grande, the Pecos, and the North Bosque rivers.

Background

Rio Grande Basin

The upper Rio Grande Basin, including the Pecos River, is impacted by hydrological modifications supporting irrigation and potable water uses. This results in little remaining water  in the rivers and water quality concerns for total dissolved solids and salinity. 

There is international, national, and regional concern for the water quality in the Rio Grande River. Continuous water quality and discharge data are needed to understand and manage these issues in these watersheds.

North Bosque

The TCEQ and the City of Waco have conducted multiple research, modeling, and monitoring studies on the North Bosque River to address wastewater permitting and water quality issues in the watershed. Discharge data from this project will be used for these studies.

Project Description

The water quality data the USGS collects in this project may be used in future planning and implementation decisions for the Rio Grande, the Pecos, and the North Bosque rivers.
