Upper Cibhttps://www.tceq.texas.gov/loginolo Creek: Developing A Watershed Protection Plan

A project that developed a watershed protection plan (WPP) for Upper Cibolo Creek.

Background

Upper Cibolo Creek in Kendall County supports an abundant and diverse aquatic community. However, its designated use for swimming and wading—activities called "primary contact recreation" in the state's standards for surface water quality—does not meet water quality standards for bacteria. Assessment data also indicate a concern for elevated phosphorus levels and low levels of dissolved oxygen.

Project Description

The City of Boerne, in partnership with the Cibolo Nature Center and local stakeholders, developed a WPP to restore the primary contact recreation uses of the creek and to prevent pollution that could result from population growth in the watershed. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency accepted the WPP on September 20, 2013.
