Lower Cibolo rec standards stay same
SAN ANTONIO -- After two years of research and fervent public input, the Texas Commission for Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has released a draft recommendation stating that contact recreation standards for the Lower Cibolo Creek remain intact. This recommendation was influenced by the findings of a Recreational Use Attainability Analysis that began in 2008.
The analysis found that Lower Cibolo Creek is frequently used for primary contact recreation activities such as swimming. Based on these findings, the TCEQ recommends that contact recreation standards should not be changed.
During the summer of 2008, San Antonio River Authority and the TCEQ cohosted a public meeting in the Wilson County community of Kosciusko to inform Lower Cibolo Creek property owners that the analysis was under way. More than 200 nearby residents attended the meeting, making clear their desire for recreation standards to remain intact. Following the public meeting, citizens and local elected officials continued to argue for preservation of contact recreation standards on the creek.
