A Watershed Protection Plan for Cedar Bayou
A Watershed Protection Plan provides a better understanding of the sources of water pollution and what area governments, individuals, community groups, and business and industry can do to improve water quality. Cedar Bayou is a tributary to the Galveston Bay system, thus any sources of contamination potentially impact a wide range of economic and ecological interests even beyond their watershed of origin.
Next Partnership Meeting – December 11th
The Cedar Bayou Watershed Partnership will be holding their next public meeting:
Eddie V. Gray Wetlands Center
1724 Market Street, Baytown
The Partnership will be discussing the results of the first year of water quality sampling, the progress of the water quality modeling efforts, and the first three chapters of the Watershed Protection Plan. Please stop by and lend your voice to this local effort!
Feedback sought on first three sections of the Watershed Protection Plan
At the Cedar Bayou Watershed Partnership meeting on 10/3/13, project staff requested stakeholder feedback on a working draft of the first three sections of the Cedar Bayou Watershed Protection Plan. A copy of these draft sections can be found on our Project Documents page. The Partnership would like to hear what you think, what changes you would recommend. The stakeholders will discuss proposed changes at the next Cedar Bayou meeting in December. More sections of the Plan will follow as we progress through our scientific evaluations.
Additionally, we’re looking for photos! We’d like to feature photos of the Bayou, water recreation in the Bayou, and the people and places of the bayou in our document. We will happily give you credit for any images we use, so send us any pictures you’d like us to consider to firstname.lastname@example.org.
