Our Region’s 15-Year-Old Stormwater Permit Needs U...
Author Last Post

Our City, County, and Flood Control District jointly hold a permit from the US EPA for the management of stormwater. Despite a requirement that the permit be reviewed every 5 years, it hasn’t been updated since 2009. In response, Bayou City Waterkeeper has requested specific updates to the permit that would:


► respond to community concerns

► reduce trash and industrial pollution

► support funding for “green infrastructure”

► increase transparency and enforcement of regulations


A letter specifically outlining needed changes and a petition of support that can be signed by concerned persons are posted online. Please give these a look and consider signing on if you agree.
