Neches River Above  Lake Palestine has two AUs and only AU 0606_01 from a point approximately 0.03 miles south of ST. Louis Southwestern Railroad upstream to the confluence with Prairie Creek is listed for bacteria. Concerns in AU 0606_02 include elevated nitrate, orthophosphorus, and total phosphorus concentrations. AU 0606_02 extends from the confluence with Prairie Creek upstream to the Rhines Lake Dam and is listed for depressed dissolved oxygen and low pH.
