Upcoming Public Meeting of the Nueces River Watershed Partnership to be Held on April 25th

Area landowners and citizens interested in the implementation of the Lower Nueces River Watershed Protection Plan (WPP) are invited to a public meeting on Wednesday, April 25, 2018.  The meeting is hosted by the Nueces River Authority and will be held at the Hilltop Community Center (Room SW #1) located at 11425 Leopard in Corpus Christi from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.  The meeting will focus on implementation activities and upcoming events in the watershed.

The WPP was developed proactively to address potential threats and ensure the long-term protection of water quality in the Coastal Bend region through implementation of both urban and rural best management practices.  “Education is vital to the success of the implementation of projects identified in the Lower Nueces River Watershed Protection Plan.  The WPP includes educational opportunities for landowners to learn how individuals can make a difference through better understanding of how rivers function and best management practices that promote natural conditions.” said Sky Lewey, Resource Protection and Education Director, Nueces River Authority.

This 39 mile stretch of the Nueces River, between Lake Corpus Christi and the saltwater barrier dam at Labonte Park is the primary source of drinking water for the area.  The watershed is approximately 116,862 acres within parts of Jim Wells, San Patricio and Nueces counties.  This water body was listed in 2012 in the Texas Integrated Report for elevated levels of total dissolved solids.

Funding for this effort is provided through a federal Clean Water Act §319(h) Nonpoint Source Grant administered by the Texas State Soil and Water Conservation Board from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
