Clear Creek Tidal: Implementing TMDLs through Low Impact Development in League City
League City is southeast of the city of Houston, on the south shore of Clear Lake. It straddles the watersheds of Clear Creek and Dickinson Bayou, two important recreational water resources impaired by high bacteria levels. A TMDL implementation plan is scheduled for completion in 2011.
League City will install LID features in a demonstration park. The features will include swales, rain gardens, pervious pavement, rainwater harvesting, and vegetated buffers. The features' performance in improving water quality will be monitored. The results will be made public and used to develop appropriate storm water ordinances.
