Physical Watershed Model

A plastic relief model of the Arroyo Colorado watershed and portions of the South Laguna Madre HUC was built to help educate people about the watershed and the geography of the Cameron, Hidalgo and Willacy Counties. The physical watershed model of the Arroyo Colorado was funded by the Nueces River Authority through the Clean Rivers Program. It is on permanent loan to the Arroyo Colorado Watershed Partnership and is available to all Partners. This 3' x 7' model of the Arroyo Colorado is made of tough durable plastic with a metal frame and used to educate people about watershed function and how nonpoint source pollution occurs.
