Angelina River at SH 204 - TCEQ ID: 10633

Site Description

Angelina River 340 meters upstream of SH 204; 9.93 km West of Cushing.

Beginning August 2011, in order to continue sampling ambient river water rather than water discharged from the new outfall just upstream of the highway crossing, sampling at this site will be performed 340 meters upstream from the highway crossing. The location map and description have been updated to reflect this change.

Segment Description

Segment 0611 - Angelina River Above Sam Rayburn Reservoir. This freshwater stream encompasses a length of 104 miles and extends from the Upper Angelina sub-basin to the Lower Angelina sub-basin. Segment 0611 originates from the aqueduct crossing 0.6 miles upstream of the confluence of the Paper Mill Creek in Angelina/Nacogdoches County to the confluence of Barnhardt Creek and Mill Creek at FM 225 in Rusk County. The designated uses for this segment include contact recreation, high aquatic life use, fish consumption use, public water supply use, and general use. This segment has two areas that are currently listed on the 303(d) list due to bacteria. The listings were placed on the 303(d) list in the year 2000 and are currently categorized as 5a (2008), indicating a total maximum daily load (TMDL) is underway or scheduled.
