Continuation of the Attoyac Bayou Watershed Protection Plan Implementation

Project Goals/Objectives: In 2009, the Attoyac Bayou Watershed Partnership was formed to address the noted bacteria impairments. Using technical support from the Angelina & Neches River Authority (ANRA), Stephen F. Austin State University (SFASU), Texas A&M University and the Texas Water Resources Institute (TWRI) and funding from TSSWCB (Project 09-10) through a project entitled Development of a Watershed Protection Plan for Attoyac Bayou, the Attoyac Bayou Watershed Protection Plan (WPP) was completed. This plan outlines an appropriate strategy to address bacteria source contributions in this rural watershed and describes practices that, when implemented, will reduce loading contributions to the watershed. The plan was published in July 2014.
