Brady Creek Watershed: Hydrodynamic Separator and Public Outreach

A project to remove debris, sediment, and oil and grease from storm water in the City of Brady, and promote the restoration of Brady Creek.


Brady Creek below Brady Lake dam has been impaired (not meeting Water Quality Standards) for aquatic life since 2004 due to low levels of dissolved oxygen. In 2016, the EPA accepted the Brady Creek Watershed Protection Plan (WPP), which was prepared by the Brady Creek WPP Steering Committee, with assistance from the Upper Colorado River Authority, to address this impairment.

Project Description

The Upper Colorado River Authority will implement several recommendations in the Brady Creek WPP:

  • Arrange installation of a hydrodynamic separator to remove debris, sediment, oil and grease from the drainage of one of Brady Creek's major sub-watersheds in the City of Brady.
  • Monitor storms to determine the hydrodynamic separator's effectiveness in reducing pollutants released by the sub-watershed into the creek.
  • Conduct regular stakeholder meetings and outreach activities to encourage the public to help implement the WPP and support restoration of the creek.
