About the Authority


Senate Bill 818 (SB 818), known as the "Texas Clean Rivers Act", was enacted in 1991 by the 72nd Legislature to ensure the comprehensive regional assessment of water quality in each watershed and river basin of the State. The Texas Clean Rivers Act (TCRA) provides for river authorities, under the supervision of the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality  (TCEQ), to conduct regional assessments of their own watersheds. These water quality assessments must include a review of wastewater discharges, nonpoint source pollution, nutrient loading, toxic materials, health of aquatic life, public education and involvement in water quality issues, local and regional pollution prevention efforts, and other factors that affect water quality within the watershed.
