Urban Waters Partnership

Westside Creeks Ecosystem Restoration

The Westside Creeks Ecosystem Restoration Exitis a community-based planning effort initiated in 2008 by the San Antonio River Authority. The mission of the project is to develop concepts for restoring the environmental condition of the Alazán, Apache, Martínez, and San Pedro Creeks, maintaining the current flood control components of these creeks and providing increased opportunities for people to enjoy and interact with the urban creeks. This project focuses on restoring the creeks to keep with and enhance the rich historical and cultural background of the community and incorporates key features into its design.

These creeks are located in close proximity to three San Antonio Housing Authority properties. Once restoration is completed, these economically distresssed communities will have access to the health, recreational, and economic benefits of local waterways.
