Geronimo Creek: Implementing a Watershed Protection Plan - Education and Outreach

A project that developed educational programs on nonpoint source pollution with on-site demonstrations of best management practices (BMPs), including Low Impact Development (LID) features at the Seguin Outdoor Learning Center.

Background

The lower portion of Geronimo Creek has not met state water quality standards for elevated bacteria since 2006. The segment has also had concerns for elevated nitrate-nitrogen since 2010. In 2012, local stakeholders completed the Geronimo Creek and Alligator Creek Watershed Protection Plan (WPP).

Project Description

This project was a collaborative effort between the Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority and the Seguin Outdoor Learning Center. Demonstration BMPs constructed at the Seguin Outdoor Learning Center serve as an outdoor classroom area where residents can learn about nonpoint source pollution, LID, and other BMPs. Digital kiosks, portable presentations, and public service announcements introduced the public to the demonstration BMPs.
