Upper Cibolo Creek: Implementing a Watershed Protection Plan

The City of Boerne is conducting education and outreach activities, and developing and implementing a domestic waterfowl management program to improve water quality on Upper Cibolo Creek.

Background

Historically the Upper Cibolo Creek has supported high levels of aquatic life. However, recently the creek was shown to be impaired due to bacteria and chloride levels that exceed standards, and has concerns for total phosphorus and orthophosphorus. A watershed protection plan was developed to restore stream health and was approved in 2013.
