Healthy Lawns and Healthy Waters Education Project

A project to deliver "Healthy Lawns and Healthy Waters" citizen training programs in the watersheds of Cypress Creek, Upper Cibolo Creek, Plum Creek, Geronimo Creek, and the Upper San Antonio River.

Background

As Texas continues to urbanize, the area covered by residential development will increase. Residential lawns can contribute bacteria from pet waste and nutrients from improperly applied fertilizers. Homes and pavement increase rainwater runoff flow, which can carry more pollutants to streams and other water bodies. Many watershed-based plans call for outreach and education programs to inform the public on how to reduce pollutant inputs and runoff volume.
