Carpenter Creek & Bayou Texar Revitalization Plan

The Carpenter Creek watershed is approximately 6,760 acres or 10.5 square miles.  The headwaters of the creek are located in south-central Escambia County, north of Interstate 10 and west of Interstate 110. The creek generally flows southeast under Olive Road, I-10, Burgess Road, I-110, Davis Highway, Airport Boulevard, Brent Lane, Ninth Avenue, and 12th Avenue before entering Bayou Texar. The watershed is located entirely within Escambia County with the downstream portion of the creek and the entirety of the bayou located within the political boundary of the City of Pensacola.  Carpenter Creek is the only significant freshwater tributary of Bayou Texar. The Bayou Texar watershed includes approximately 5,266 acres or 8.2 square miles of additional drainage area not already included within the Carpenter Creek watershed.
