Tule Creek West Improvement, Phase II
Upper Tule Creek drains areas of Rockport and Fulton, Texas. Population growth and development, which have led to more stormwater runoff and bank erosion in the creek, are expected to increase in the next two decades. Higher peak flows in the creek have already led to significant bank failure along the creek and massive deposits of sediment from the mouth of Tule Creek into Little Bay.
This project will address increasing, chronic bank erosion by extending bank modifications and restoration along an additional 1,600 feet of the creek's east bank. Some portions of the bank will be made more stable by flattening the slope, installing erosion control fabric, and reseeding. Sections of the creek may also be lined with rock. Native riparian vegetation will be re-established to provide long-term protection against bank failure.
