Lake Granbury Watershed Protection Plan

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality approved for funding the Brazos River Authority’s FY2011 CWA Section 319(h) grant proposal: “Implementation of Selected Management Measures from the Lake Granbury Watershed Protection Plan.” The project provided assistance to local stakeholders for implementing the management measures they prescribed in the WPP, tracking implementation effectiveness of management measures in improving water quality, continuing facilitation of the Lake Granbury Watershed Stakeholders Group, providing outreach and education requested by stakeholders in the WPP, and seeking funding opportunities to ensure implementation of the management measures recommended WPP. The Brazos River Authority partnered with Texas A&M University AgriLife Research and Extension Center to accomplish the project goals. Work on this project concluded August 31, 2014.

Texas A&M University AgriLife Research and Extension Center were subsequently awarded an additional CWA Section 319(h) grant to continue work for implementation of the WPP, which will run through August 31, 2016. The focus of the current grant is to identify lake-side residents that qualify for septic system replacement and to continue local education and outreach activities. Texas A&M Agrilife has submitted an additional application for continued funding that, if awarded, will begin September 1, 2016.
