SARA seeks funds for Cibolo Creek
The San Antonio River Authority’s Operations Committee has voted to seek a grant to complete a plan to protect the mid and lower Cibolo Creek watersheds in Wilson and Karnes counties. The grant proposal will request funding from the Texas State Soil and Water Conservation Board for “watershed assessment, planning, implementation, demonstration, and education projects.”
Patricia Carvajal of SARA’s Environmental Sciences Department recommended making the grant proposal during the Aug. 11 meeting in the authority’s headquarters in San Antonio. She said the amount of the grant would be determined after receiving input and estimates from Texas A&M AgriLife, which will subcontract with SARA to complete the watershed protection plan. Carvajal added that residents of the area want Cibolo Creek to meet standards for recreational use.
The grant application pre-proposal must be submitted to the state conservation board by Friday, Aug. 22. If selected to go forward, the proposal will be finalized for submission to the Environmental Protection Agency by May 2015, with the notification of the grant award by August 2015. If the grant is awarded, it will fund equipment use and professional services from AgriLife.
