Canal Water Quality Data

The Authority’s monitoring consists of routine sampling of the Neches River and its tributaries. Water quality data collection and processing activities are the responsibility of LNVA’s environmental analysts. Water quality parameters monitored include dissolved oxygen saturation, total alkalinity, calcium, chloride, true color, conductivity, hardness, total iron, manganese, pH, temperature, total suspended solids, total dissolved substances, turbidity and others as necessary. Water quality parameters are established by TCEQ.


The following data is being made available by Lower Neches Valley Authority and has been collected by United States Geological Survey (USGS), National Ocean Survey (NOS), Lamar University Beaumont (LUB), Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TECQ), Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) and Lower Neches Valley Authority (LNVA), and is furnished “as is”.
