This project was initiated through the Houston-Galveston Area Council. The HGAC received a grant to develop an erosion control pilot project that could be used in other similar situations throughout the Texas coastal area. A number of federal, state and local agencies and groups were gathered together to view the site, assess the situation, and develop potential solutions. The group was able to develop two possible solutions to solve two identified problems, 1) stop the erosion process, and 2) establish new marshlands in the already eroded area of Little Cedar Bayou. The ensuing report was used to obtain grant agreements with the Texas General Land Office (project administrator), U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, and Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission through the Galveston Bay Estuary Program (see attached report).
