The UCRA has worked with the City of Brady for the past 16 years to construct BMPs, develop a Brady Creek Master
Plan, prepare a Watershed Characterization Plan and write a Watershed Protection Plan (WPP) with funds received from
the EPA NPS program and managed by TCEQ.
The UCRA was awarded a contract for the development of a Brady Creek Watershed Protection Plan (WPP) in 2010. A
completed plan was submitted to TCEQ in September 2014 and approved in August 2016. The plan was the 10th to be
approved and this plan is for the 2nd largest watershed in terms of area. The primary goal of the plan is to restore water
quality within impaired segments and maintain the integrity of the remaining watershed.
As a result of the approved plan, UCRA submitted a grant application for the first phase of an implementation project in
2016. Notification of award was received in December 2016 and the contract was executed on September 1, 2017. UCRA
staff is currently working on a Quality Assurance Project Plan. A new stakeholder group is being developed and a kick-off
meeting is planned for late February 2018.
