Watershed Implementation Plan Update

Hello Cypress Creek Friends and Neighbors,

Happy Spring! It’s hard to believe we’re 3 months in to 2018. Much has happened in the last few months and we’re excited to share this update with you. We wrapped up our bacterial sampling study, installed a rainwater harvesting system at the Patsy Glenn Refuge, kept an eye on the compromised dam in Woodcreek and more.

Spring is going to be an even busier time. New staff is joining the Meadows Center and the Cypress Creek Project, and we will be implementing more BMPs and educational programs in the watershed. Our goals for 2018 include increased water quality monitoring, technical resource guides for the public, as well as for builders, developers and local leaders. We will also be working with our partners and key stakeholders to construct several rain gardens, rainwater catchment systems and other low impact development demonstration features. We have several events planned this spring. Join us in March to learn about the critical role that soil management plays in protecting our watershed – and what you can do to help build healthy soils. Please keep reading for more information. Don’t forget to visit our website for events, updates and information. As always, please don’t hesitate to contact with us with questions or to find out more about keeping Cypress Creek Clean, Clear and Flowing. We look forward to seeing you out in the watershed!
