WVWA has been collecting quality assured water quality data since 2003 and is the only nonprofit organization in the state of Texas to do so. This data is used to assess whether surface water in the Blanco River and Cypress Creek is meeting Federal Clean Water Act standards. WVWA will continue to participate in the CRP in partnership with the Guadalupe Blanco River Authority (GBRA), the Meadow’s Center for Water and the Environment, and the Texas Clean Rivers Program.
A water quality dashboard for the Wimberley Valley Watershed has been established here.
