In 1991 the Texas Clean Rivers Program was introduced as a state-funded, non-regulatory program dedicated to developing a collaboration with local entities to help manage and improve water quality issues within each river basin. The Clean Rivers Program is a partnership between the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ), LNVA and stakeholders working to assess, maintain and improve the quality of surface waters within the Lower Neches basin. The program uses a watershed management approach to identify and evaluate water quality issues, establish priorities for corrective action and work to implement those actions.
Clean Rivers Program Objectives
- Provide quality-assured data to TCEQ for use in decision making
- Identify and evaluate water quality issues
- Promote cooperative watershed planning
- Recommend management strategies
- Inform and engage stakeholders
- Maintain efficient use of public funds

Major Rivers and his horse Aquifer will make learning all about water in Texas irresistibly fun. Major Rivers is a water education program designed to teach students about Texas’ major water resources, how water is treated and delivered to their homes and schools, how to care for their water resources, and how to use them wisely. The program’s host, Major Rivers (named for the major rivers of Texas), and his horse Aquifer cover these topics in eight lessons that include a variety of activities in science, math, language arts, social studies and other subjects.
