This technical report is an assessment of water quality requirements for aquatic species and aquatic-dependent
species (e.g., shore birds) that have been listed (or proposed for listing) in Texas as threatened
or endangered under the Endangered Species Act of 1973. The document’s purpose is to provide
preliminary information on water quality for federally listed species and designated critical habitat that
can be used by personnel of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) and other agencies in regard to
the development of protective water quality criteria and standards. The report may serve as an
informational resource by regulatory agencies, permittees, and applicants for actions required under the
Endangered Species Act such as development of biological opinions or habitat conservation plans.
