WWS Endangered Species Bird Information- Updated September 26, 2018*
Whitewater Springs Subdivision (WWS) located in the center of the Texas Canyon Lands, covers an area of over 1,650-acres containing 512 single family lots and over 450-acres of undisturbed common areas. Besides being a beautiful area of Texas with rolling hills, vista views, and Cow Creek; WWS is abundant in flora and fauna species-including the Golden-Cheek Warbler. Approximately 146-acres of WWS is designated as a Federal Protected Golden-Cheek Warbler (GCW) habitat area which has certain associated building and lot clearing restriction. Within and immediately adjacent to the 146-acres, clearing of vegetation during the GCW breeding season may occur only during non-breeding season (August 1 through March 1), unless a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service permitted biologist conducts a survey that indicates no GCWs are within 300 feet of the proposed clearing.
