Geronimo Creek: Implementing a Watershed Protection Plan (WPP)

As part of a Watershed Protection Plan for Geronimo Creek the City of Seguin will decommission failing septic systems and extend sewer service to some areas.

Background

The lower portion of Geronimo Creek has been impaired (has not met Water Quality Standards) for elevated bacteria since 2006. The segment also had concerns for elevated nitrate-nitrogen in 2000 and 2010. In 2012, local stakeholders completed a WPP for Geronimo Creek and Alligator Creek.The WPP identifies failing septic systems as one of the primary causes of the bacteria impairment and nitrate-nitrogen concerns for Geronimo Creek
