Following the Memorial Day Flood of 2015, Shoal Creek Conservancy commissioned engineering firm Alan Plummer Associates to evaluate the potential floodplain level reductions resulting from removing gravel, sediment bars and woody vegetation growing in the bottom of Shoal Creek between 15th Street and Lady Bird Lake. The study suggests the “shoals” of Shoal Creek are not playing a significant role in the flooding of Shoal Creek, but it does cast a suspect glance at bridges as major players.
