Clear Creek Tidal: Implementing TMDLs through Low Impact Development in League City

Low Impact Development (LID) features installed in League City to support the TMDL Implementation Plan for Clear Creek Tidal.

Background

League City is southeast of the city of Houston, on the south shore of Clear Lake. It straddles the watersheds of Clear Creek and Dickinson Bayou, two important recreational water resources, neither of which meet state water quality standards for bacteria. A TMDL implementation plan for bacteria for the Clear Creek watershed and many other Houston-area watersheds was approved in 2013.

Project Description

League City installed low impact development (LID) features in a demonstration park. The features include swales, rain gardens, pervious pavement, rainwater harvesting, green roof, "WaterSmart Landscaping," and vegetated buffers. The features' performance in improving water quality was monitored. The results are contained in the Project Final Report Adobe Acrobat PDF Document and are being offered for use in developing appropriate storm water ordinances.
