Upper San Antonio River Watershed Protection Plan Implementation: Green Stormwater Infrastructure Master Plan

A project to develop a master plan for using green stormwater infrastructure.

Background

Since 2000, portions of the Upper San Antonio River have been listed in the Texas Integrated Report as impaired (not meeting Water Quality Standards) because levels of fecal bacteria have exceeded the contact recreation standard. In 2006, the San Antonio River Authority (SARA) completed the Upper San Antonio River Watershed Protection Plan (WPP). The WPP anticipates that using green stormwater infrastructure will assist in reducing contaminants in runoff with the growing urban population.
