The strategy for improving this river segment includes the following activities:

  • Reduce bird feeding at Louise Hays Park and Kerrville-Schreiner Park
  • Install bird exclusion-deterrent devices on the Highway 16 and Loop 534 bridges over the water
  • Manage the waterfowl population at Louise Hays Park and Kerrville-Schreiner Park
  • Reduce human contributions through ongoing replacement of lateral sewage lines, sewer inspection and rehabilitation, and ongoing review and registration of septic-system plans
  • Implement an education program for pet owners and install pet waste stations at public parks
  • Reduce contributions from general urban runoff through street sweeping, river cleanups, and storm water education programs
  • Monitor and report E. coli concentrations from WWTFs
