Cypress Creek (Segment 1009): Developing a Watershed Protection Plan

A project to develop a watershed protection plan for Cypress Creek, Segment 1009, in northwestern Harris County.

Background

The Cypress Creek watershed in northwestern Harris County is comprised of mixed land uses ranging from rapidly urbanizing areas in its eastern extent, to rural prairieland at the edge of growth in its western headwaters. Cypress Creek and its tributaries face bacteria impairments and concerns for depressed dissolved oxygen, elevated nutrients, and impaired macrobenthic communities.
