Rowlett Creek Watershed Characterization

A project to collect and analyze water quality data for Rowlett Creek as a first step toward developing a watershed protection plan.


Since 2014, Rolwett Creek has been listed in the Texas Integrated Report as impaired (not meeting Water Quality Standards) because levels of fecal bacteria have exceeded the contact recreation standard. It is also listed with a concern for nitrate.
