Galveston Bay, near Houston, is important for coastal species like redfish, shrimp, blue crabs and more. These species depend on easy access between the bay and the Gulf—and they are important to the food chain of the Gulf of Mexico.
Right now, the Corps is considering a suite of hard infrastructure projects—including levees, floodwalls and gates—intended to protect coastal communities from storm surge.
But this plan could dramatically change the way water and wildlife are able to move in and out of the bay.
The plan is still at an early stage and the placement and design of the structures is still up in the air. Therefore, the impacts to wildlife and water quality cannot be meaningfully assessed.
We can’t risk the health of the upper Texas Coast!
Personalize the message below to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers asking them to conduct a more thorough analysis of the environmental impacts from their proposed projects.
