Austin Watershed, Notes from Blue Crew

February 2020

Blue Crew worked with Austin watershed to remove the invasive plant Chinese Privet. We used weed wrenches to manually remove the entire plants, making sure to remove their roots. Our focus area was the uphill of a water culvert to study the effects of the invasive plants on runoff. After the privet was removed we spread Inland Sea Oats, a native grass seed, in the cleared areas.
