Water Quality in Texas
Water is a finite resource that can be significantly polluted by a variety of sources. Hundreds of Texas water bodies currently do not comply with state water quality standards.
While some water pollution is often easy to detect, bacteria pollution is easy to test for, but can’t see it like other pollution. Elevated concentrations of E. coli bacteria in water are an indicator of fecal contamination and can pose an increased health risk to downstream users.
Livestock producers and landowners need to carefully consider any measures they can take to minimize water pollution.
