This project implements the Plum Creek Watershed Protection Plan by installing low impact development (LID) best management practices at the City of Kyle’s wastewater treatment facility.

Background

Plum Creek as a whole has a listed impairment due to high bacteria concentrations, and there are listed concerns for low dissolved oxygen and high nitrate; total phosphorus and ortho-phosphorus; and aquatic habitat. The Plum Creek Watershed Protection Plan calls for incorporating low impact development to help reduce nonpoint source pollution in runoff and improve water quality in the creek.
