Watershed Management: Watershed Planning
Brooker Creek Watershed
The Brooker Creek Watershed extends across northeastern Pinellas County and northwestern Hillsborough County, just south of the Pasco County line. The watershed is approximately bordered on the west by East Lake Road, on the north by Tarpon Springs Road and Gunn Highway, on the east by the Veteran’s Expressway and Gunn Highway, and on the south by Racetrack Road.
The portion of the watershed located within Hillsborough County was the subject of a Stormwater Management Plan prepared by Advance Engineering in 2001 and was updated by Post, Buckley, Schuh and Jernigan, Inc. (PBS&J) in 2006.
The entire watershed was the subject of a Watershed Management Plan by URS Corporation in 2010. The study of the Brooker Creek Watershed is a multi-phase project with several components. The goal of the first part of the study was to develop Digital Topographic Information and a Watershed Evaluation in preparation of a basin-wide stormwater study of the Brooker Creek Watershed.
