11th Annual River Cleanup
UGRA hosted its 11th Annual River Clean Up on Saturday, July 26, 2014. A total of 6,495 pounds of garbage was collected by 312 participants, working along the river from above Hunt all the way to Center Point. The goal of the River Clean Up is to raise public awareness about the problem of littering and participants include friends, families, coworkers, groups, and individuals.
Green Stormwater Infrastructure Seminar
Green infrastructure are low impact development practices that promote the natural movement of water, instead of allowing it to wash into streets and down storm drains. Having less water runoff into storm drains and roadways can help prevent contamination of waterways, infrastructure degradation, and flooding.
Water Enhancement through Brush Management Video
The Upper Guadalupe River Authority is committed to water enhancement. Over the last 200 years, the density of Ashe juniper trees, also known as cedar, has increased in our region and poses a major threat to the health of our watershed and water supply. Thousands of gallons of water can be gained for every acre of cedar converted to native rangeland. One way UGRA is enhancing water supply is through the removal of cedar in our watershed.
Be Flood Aware
Central Texas has been identified as the most flash flood prone area in the United States by the National Weather Service and has often been referred to as flash flood alley. The best advice we can give is to never drive through flood waters. "Turn around, don't drown!"
