Project Goals/Objectives: To accurately assess the Davidson Creek, Middle Yegua and Deer Creek watersheds and identify potential causes and sources of pollution, water quality monitoring and characterization are needed. Through this project data will be collected to supplement existing data. Stakeholders will be engaged to participate in characterizing the watershed and estimating load reductions
Project Background: Water quality in Davidson Creek, Middle Yegua and Deer Creek currently exceeds recreational use standards and as a result, a recreational use attainability analysis was conducted on each waterbody. Reports show that primary contract recreation occurs on all three waterbodies indicating that standards will not change.
Project Location: Davidson Creek in Milam and Burleson Counties; Middle Yegua Creek in Lee, Bastrop, Williamson, Milam Counties; Deer Creek in Falls County
Project Costs: $284,154 (Non-Federal)
