The Texas Clean Rivers Program (CRP) is a statewide program established to holistically manage water quality issues throughout the state. The Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority (GBRA) partners with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) to administer the CRP for the Guadalupe River and Lavaca-Guadalupe Coastal Basins. The CRP is managed by the TCEQ and is funded entirely by fees assessed to wastewater discharge and water rights permit holders. The programs objectives are to provide quality assured data to the TCEQ for use in decision making, identify and evaluate water quality issues, promote cooperative watershed planning, recommend management strategies, inform and engage stakeholders, and maintain efficient use of public funds. GBRA, along with the Upper Guadalupe River Authority (UGRA), carry out the water quality management efforts in these basins under contract with the TCEQ. The Wimberley Valley Watershed Association (WVWA) contributes monitoring data collected under the Guadalupe Basin CRP quality assurance project plan from the Blanco River and Cypress Creek watersheds.
