Shoal Creek: Developing a Watershed Protection Plan

This project will develop a watershed protection plan (WPP) for Shoal Creek in Austin.


Shoal Creek is in west-central Austin, Texas, and empties into Lady Bird Lake. It has no listed impairments, but a tributary, Spicewood Springs, is impaired (fails to meet Water Quality Standards) because of high levels of fecal bacteria. A TMDL has been completed for Spicewood Springs.

Project Description

The Shoal Creek Conservancy will prepare a WPP for the Shoal Creek watershed inclusive of tributaries. It will convene a stakeholder committee at bimonthly meetings to organize public input for the plan. It will collect supplemental water quality monitoring data to use in the required watershed modeling.
