The Watershed Master Plan assesses erosion, flood and water quality problems in Austin. It also prioritizes and implements effective solutions that address all three problems. Solutions include projects, programs and regulations.
The Phase 1 Watershed Master Plan was adopted by City Council in June 2001. It included the 17 most populated watersheds. Phase 2 includes the remaining watersheds that are wholly or partly in Austin’s jurisdiction. Phase 2 is ongoing.
We are updating the Master Plan to incorporate information from recently studied watersheds and the problem scores on Phase 1 watersheds. The update will include information on the status of the recommendations from Phase 1 and provide additional recommendations.
