Water quality testing found that bacteria concentrations are elevated in Gilleland Creek, located in northeastern Travis county. High bacteria concentrations might pose a risk to people who swim or wade in the creek. Swimming and wading are called “contact recreation” in the state’s standards for water quality; the term refers to all recreation in which people are likely to swallow natural waters.
The goal of this project is to reduce bacteria concentrations to within acceptable risk levels for contact recreation.
The TCEQ worked with a stakeholder group coordinated by the Lower Colorado River Authority to develop the TMDL and I-Plan. Find out more about what it means to participate in TMDL projects.
