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.
