Projects

This project will stabilize and rehabilitate approximately 1800 linear feet of a degraded, incised tributary to Williamson Creek in the Indian Hills Subdivision. Rehabilitation will include use of natural materials, native vegetation, and trash & debris removal.

This is a major construction project in the Cherry Creek neighborhood. We are installing a storm drain system on several roads to improve drainage and reduce flooding of houses, yards and streets.

This project combines both stream restoration and water quality improvements to restore approximately 3000 feet of Boggy Creek in Rosewood Park. The primary goal is to restore channel stability.

There are four storm drain projects planned for the Dawson Neighborhood. The largest is the Euclid-Wilson project. The purpose of all four is to improve drainage and reduce flooding of houses, yards and streets.

To help protect the endangered Barton Springs and Austin Blind Salamanders, we are proposing changes to Eliza Spring – that’s the sunken, fenced-off amphitheater area just outside of Barton Springs Pool.

We have completed new floodplain studies that indicate revised flood risks for several Austin watersheds. We periodically restudy creeks to ensure accurate floodplain maps, which help us prepare for flooding.

This channel rehabilitation project uses an integrated approach to resolve flooding, erosion, and habitat degradation problems while improving water quality along about one mile of Fort Branch Creek.

The Watershed Protection Department is buying out flood-prone homes within the Onion Creek Forest, Onion Creek Plantation, Silverstone and Yarrabee Bend neighborhoods.

This will be a major construction project in the Ridgelea neighborhood. We will be installing a storm drain system on several roads to improve drainage and reduce flooding of houses, yards and streets.

In April of 2007, the City discovered evidence of an old illegal dumping site behind the homes on Ridgeway and Pandora in the Homewood Heights Neighborhood.

This project will stabilize erosion areas and enhance shoreline vegetation on the Shoal Creek Peninsula, a man-made piece of land that extends into Lady Bird Lake near the Seaholm Power Plant site.

The Shoal Creek project aims to provide erosion protection in Shoal Creek, improve the quality of stormwater runoff that enters the area, and restore native vegetation along the creek corridor.

This project will restore an approximately 1,100 feet of Waller Creek within Eastwoods Park. Most visibly, the project will restore and stabilize the creek’s severely eroding stream banks.

For years, Austin’s Waller Creek has been beset by flooding, erosion and litter.  The creek corridor has taken on a neglected character and has fallen short of its potential. The Waller Creek Tunnel Project, the first step toward reintegrating the creek into the life of Austin, will address these problems.

This restoration project will stabilize and restore 3,000 linear feet of Williamson Creek Tributary 2, upstream of McKinney Falls State Park, to protect nearby property and improve the stream integrity.
