Briar Creek Watershed

Stream Restoration and Water Quality Enhancement

Rainfall in the densely-developed Briar Creek Watershed is likely to fall on pavement or rooftops.  All of that storm water runoff increases pollution and the risk of flash flooding.  Numerous storm water projects in this watershed are designed to:

  • Reduce street flooding
  • Repair the channels of Briar Creek and its tributaries
  • Improve water quality
