Nolan Creek Matters

Funding provided in part by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality through a Clean Water Act Section 319(h) grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.



Why Does Nolan Creek Matter?

Nolan Creek is used for recreation and to collect floodwater however, it is classified as impaired by bacteria and nutrients and contamination source(s) such as E.coli, nitrite/nitrate, phosphorus, & septic systems. Since Nolan Creeks classification the City of Nolanville and the surrounding communities of Nolan Creek have continued to develop plans to improve the water quality and find the source(s) of the pollution. Though Nolan Creek is not a drinking source it is important that we take care of it so we can continue to use it for recreation and ensure that our local aquatic and wildlife have a flourishing environment to live in.
