A message from the Plum Creek Watershed Partnership 

The Plum Creek Watershed Partnership has developed a Watershed Protection Plan as a proactive approach to restoring and protecting Plum Creek and its tributaries in Caldwell and Hays Counties in South Central Texas. The watershed planning process led to key recommendations including public outreach and best practices. Through focused local effort, implementation is underway to address water quality issues, including E. coli bacteria and nutrient levels. Browse the website to find out more and get involved!
