Guadalupe River Above Canyon Lake: Implementing a Plan to Protect Recreational Uses
River Basin: Guadalupe
On this page:
Water quality testing conducted prior to 2006 indicated that concentrations of bacteria are sometimes too high in Segment 1806 of the Guadalupe River, the Guadalupe River above Canyon Lake. The areas of concern were confined to two small assessment areas within the city of Kerrville: (1) one mile upstream of Flat Rock Dam to a confluence with Camp Meeting Creek, and (2) from RR 394 to one mile downstream.
Beginning in 2014, assessment indicated that two tributaries to Segment 1806, Town Creek (1806E) and Quinlan Creek (1806D), sometimes have bacteria concentrations that are too high. Additional TMDLs will be developed for these creeks and added as an addendum in the state's Water Quality Management Plan.
