North Concho River: Bank Stabilization
The North Concho River is identified on the Texas list of impaired water bodies for low dissolved oxygen and high bacteria levels. The urban portion of the river through San Angelo consists of a series of in-channel reservoirs retained by dams.
Due to poor water quality and frequent fish kills, this portion of the river has been the focus of several nonpoint source (NPS) projects. The Upper Concho River Authority led the development of the Concho River Watershed Protection Plan (WPP) in June 2008.
This project will implement a portion of the WPP by installing stabilization features along a 2,000-foot section of the river. The construction work to stabilize the bank has been completed; re-establishing a permanent, stable vegetation cover is under way.
