This document provides a summary of recent monitoring data collected to characterize bacteria (E. coli) loads in the
watershed near the City of Kerrville, Texas. The period of data collection includes July 2008 through August 2010. Upper Guadalupe River
The purpose of this report is to identify and assess potential sources of bacteria, and to evaluate best management practices (BMPs) that can be used to mitigate those sources.
Phase 3 of the Upper Guadalupe River Authority (UGRA) Total Maximum Daily Load Implementation Plan (TMDL IP) was completed on August 31, 2010. This report documents public participation activities and includes relevant materials.
The goal of this implementation plan is the reduction of bacteria concentrations in the Upper Guadalupe River to levels that meet the contact recreation standards. The plan describes the steps TCEQ, UGRA, and the stakeholders will take to achieve the pollutant reduction and outlines the schedule for implementation activities.
UGRA is committed to the long-term conservation of water quantity and quality for both surface water and groundwater. An important part in the planning for future water use is to maximize and enhance our current water supply. Water enhancement through brush management is a worthwhile strategy with proven success.
