Our Work

Double Bayou Watershed Protection Plan

HARC is working with the Texas State Soil and Water Conservation Board to engage stakeholders in developing a Watershed Protection Plan (WPP). A WPP is a locally developed, voluntary watershed management plan that helps to restore and protect water quality. The WPP process engages stakeholders in a collaborative and participatory approach in watershed planning.

The project is led by Dr. Stephanie Glenn, Senior Research Scientist and Program Director of Hydrology and Watersheds. HARC is partnering with the USGS and Shead Conservation Solutions on the Double Bayou Watershed Protection Plan. USGS will conduct water quality monitoring and Shead Conservation Solutions will engage in stakeholder outreach.

The work will include water quality monitoring, data assessment, potential pollutant load modeling, and development of a WPP that engages stakeholders in decisions such as the most suitable Best Management Practices for their watershed.
