The proposed study includes San Pedro Creek from 1-35 to the confluence with the San Antonio River, Apache Creek from the Elmendorf Lake Dam to the confluence with San Pedro Creek, Alazan Creek from the Woodlawn Lake Dam to the confluence with Apache Creek, and Martinez Creek from Hildebrand Street to the confluence with Alazan Creek. The Feasibility Study will (1) identify aquatic and riparian ecosystem restoration opportunities (2) develop and evaluate ecosystem restoration altematives (3) verify existing flood plain conditions; (4) use sustainable design methodologies and explore possibilities for multipurpose use, including recreation; and (5) provide a recommendation for project implementation, if applicable.

The Feasibility Study of the Westside Creeks watershed is being conducted in response to initial findings of the Reconnaissance Study.
