Lower Colorado River and East Matagorda Bay Inflow Assessment
Aqua Strategies, through a contract with Texas State University (TSU), will provide conceptual design for a proposed pipeline delivering augmented freshwater inflow to East Matagorda Bay. The timing and delivery rate of water will be determined as will the frequency and conditions under which diversion from the Colorado River would occur. Existing salinity, habitat and aquatic species information will be used to guide the assessment. The work will result in a feasibility recommendation report discussing estimated cost, engineering feasibility, and likely environmental benefits.
