Posted on Sep 19th, 2017
The Houston-Galveston Area Council (H-GAC) has announced the San Bernard Watershed Protection Plan (WPP) has been approved by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ), accepted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and is ready to move forward with plan implementation.
Plan Overview: The WPP identifies sources of pollution in the watershed and recommends voluntary solutions to improve water quality, which include repairing and replacing failing on-site sewage systems and supporting local agricultural operations in implementing land use management techniques that protect area waterways.
Next Steps: Moving forward, H-GAC and project stakeholders will continue working together to implement the plan. Visit the project website to learn more about this effort and view the approved WPP.
