Comal River and Dry Comal Creek: Characterization and Watershed Plan Development

Projects to develop a watershed plan for Dry Comal Creek and the Comal River in two phases: characterization and watershed plan development.

Background

In 2012, Dry Comal Creek (Segment 1811A), a major tributary of the Comal River, was listed as impaired for bacteria. Bacteria levels in the Comal River are rising as the watersheds rapidly urbanize. return to top Return to top

Project Description

Phase I of this project is producing a watershed characterization for the Comal River, which includes Dry Comal Creek. Potential bacteria loads from various sources within the watershed are being evaluated, and load duration curves (LDCs) are being used to estimate pollutant load reductions needed to meet state water quality standards.

Phase II of this project will build on the watershed characterization to develop a watershed protection plan for the Comal River and tributaries.
