Due to the continued levels of e-coli in the creek, Bull Creek District Park is in danger of losing the off leash area (ola). The water quality testing and e-coli problem has been going on for over a year but the City of Austin has recently escalated its actions.
Several City of Austin departments are currently conducting meetings to review the water quality data and are making decisions on the future of this park and its off leash area with out including YOU, the stakeholders and users of the park!
This is a public park and the possibility of closing the off leash area should involve the public. Bull Creek Dog Off Leash Group-BCDOG asks that you take a moment and email or call the following people to ask for public involvement in the review of this park and the off leash area. We are asking for public involvement thru a taskforce so that the source of the e-coli can be determined and find possible solutions.
