August Meeting Reports
Posted on Aug 2nd, 2017

These reports are a way to let the public know what FOR’s been up to. It’s also a way that someone can determine if there is any way they’d like to get involved in things. Please contact FOR if you are interested.
  • Aug 1, H-GAC Brazos Colorado Coastal Basin Characterization Report, West Columbia Civic Center‚Äč
FOR Director Valroy Maudlin and wife Adalia Maudlin and FOR Director Tom Ronayne attended the H-GAC presentation in West Columbia. The report summarized work that has been done to provide a big picture of the watershed located in between the Brazos and Colorado watersheds. It details the land uses, the stream segments that do not meet state water quality standards for contact recreation, possible sources of bacteria pollutants, and methods to address those sources. 
 
Of special interest to San Bernard residents and stakeholders, attendees were advised that the San Bernard Watershed Protection Plan (WPP) has finally been approved by the EPA. This will allow H-GAC, the Texas Soil and Water Conservation Board (Soil Board) and TCEQ to pursue grant money to implement the various recommendations in the WPP. The FOR representatives asked to be included in planning the WPP implementation process and were assured they would be.
  • Aug 5, Breakfast on the Bernard, Dido's Restaurant
Forty friends of the river attended the regular first-Saturday-of-the-month FOR hosted Breakfast on the Bernard where anyone who is a friend of the river is invited. After a great breakfast and coffee, people moved to the FOR Community Center to hear a fun and informative fishing program with speakers Tom Guffey and Ronnie Wingo.
