How does the overall health of Galveston Bay impact communities in our region? How can residents help protect this valuable natural resource?

The larger Galveston Bay watershed begins at the Trinity River’s headwaters and extends south from the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex to Galveston Bay. Half of all Texas residents live in the Galveston Bay watershed. Activities that occur in the upper watershed can impact downstream waterways and the Bay.

Science-based analyses for resource planning are vital to conserve and manage Galveston Bay. Learn how HARC’s team of water experts provides resources on waterway health through a holistic watershed approach.
