Brazoria County Watershed Protection Meetings
 
Freeport, TX and Lake Jackson, TX – Brazoria County’s Bastrop Bayou Watershed Protection Meetings continue with two meetings in October.  Sea Center Texas on 300 Medical Drive in Lake Jackson hosts the meeting on Tuesday, October 28, from 4:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in the Conference Room.  This meeting is after closing hours.  Participants should drive in through the side iron gate around the back to get into the building.  The Brazoria County Environmental Center on 10310 FM 523 in Freeport hosts the meeting on Thursday, October 30, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in the conference room.  This meeting is a “Lunch and Learn” style meeting.  Participants may bring their own lunch.
 
The schedule for the October Open House begins with an introduction of the Bastrop Bayou Watershed Planning Project followed by a presentation of various watershed education and outreach programs.  A discussion period follows the presentations.  Attend one of these meetings and help to formulate the watershed plan with your ideas for managing Bastrop Bayou! 
 
Bastrop Bayou is one of the last unchannelized bayous along the upper Texas coast.  Tremendous growth is predicted here in the future. A watershed protection plan guides the management of vital water resources.  This plan will also address elevated bacteria concentration concerns.  Sponsors for the watershed protection plan are Houston-Galveston Area Council, Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, and the Galveston Bayou Estuary Program.
