Cedar Bayou Watershed Water Quality Monitoring

Cedar Bayou ambient monitoring site

Purpose/Objectives

Provide monitoring data for use in the Cedar Bayou Watershed Protection Plan. Tasks include ambient water quality monitoring, 24-hour dissolved oxygen monitoring, and biological assessments within the Cedar Bayou watershed.

Study Area

Cedar Bayou watershed

Project Period

2012 – 2015

Description/Methodology

"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. Over the next 30 years, areas that are currently undeveloped or lightly developed within the region provide the most promise in helping to sustain healthy water quality for the entire region. Watershed planning plays an integral role in ensuring good water quality in the future. H-GAC and community partners have committed to develop a nine-element Watershed Protection Plan (WPP) for the Cedar Bayou watershed."
