Upper Cibolo Creek: Developing A Watershed Protection Plan
Upper Cibolo Creek in Kendall County supports an abundant and diverse aquatic community. However, its designated use for swimming and wading—activities called "contact recreation" in the state's standards for surface water quality—is currently impaired due to elevated bacteria levels. Assessment data also indicated a concern for elevated phosphorus levels and low levels of dissolved oxygen.
The City of Boerne, in partnership with the Cibolo Nature Center and local stakeholders, developed a WPP to restore the contact recreation uses of the creek and to prevent pollution that could result from population growth in the watershed. EPA accepted the WPP on September 20, 2013.
