SKIDMORE – Area landowners and citizens interested in learning about a water quality study on Aransas Creek are invited to a public meeting on Tuesday, May 29, in Skidmore.

Aransas Creek is a tributary to the Aransas River that flows through Refugio County.

The meeting, hosted by the Texas State Soil and Water Conservation Board, Bee County Soil and Water Conservation District and the Nueces River Authority, will be from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the Skidmore-Tynan High School, 213 West Walton Street in Skidmore.

The creek flows 20 miles from its headwaters west of Beeville to its confluence with the Aransas River northeast of Skidmore.

The watershed is approximately 45,195 acres. Aransas Creek watershed is one of many rural waterbodies listed on the Texas 303(d) List of impairments due to elevated levels of E. coli, the non-pathogenic indicator bacteria, used to assess the possible presence of pathogens that would limit the contact recreation use of a waterbody.

Tributaries to Aransas Creek include Dry Creek, Elm Creek, and Olmos Creek.

The meeting will provide an overview of the Recreational Use Attainability Analysis process, project goals and timeline, and provide an opportunity to gain landowner input on the process.

For more information about the Aransas Creek Recreational Use Attainability Analysis, including the agenda for the May 29 meeting, is available at: http://www.tsswcb.texas.gov/managementprogram/aransaruaa or by contacting Sam Sugarek at (361) 653-2110 or ssugarek@nueces-ra.org.
