Researchers Study Nueces Delta Freshwater Inflows

A new report details the study of key marsh plants in the Nueces River Delta as a gauge of estimated needs for freshwater inflow for the estuarine wetlands.

As reported in Texas Water Journal, researchers have studied the abundance of key marsh plants in the Nueces River Delta as a gauge of estimated needs for freshwater inflow to sustain the health of estuarine wetlands. The report concludes that the state of these plants did serve as a useful indicator, within a certain time range, of the condition of the wetlands in question.
