Nonpoint Source (NPS) Grant Projects - Petronila Creek

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has awarded a nonpoint source grant to the Railroad Commission of Texas for the investigation of the nature and extent of known salinity contamination in Petronila Creek, Nueces County. The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has placed Petronila Creek on the state's 303(d) list because it does not meet water quality standards. The RRC will use this grant to conduct various activities to reduce the high salinity that contributes to water quality degradation.
