dc.description.abstractAn organization established by the Texas Water Pollution Control Board under the direction of the State Health Department and the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department to monitor water quality in the Galveston Bay area. This collection contains correspondence files, reports, financial records, and compilations of sampling data. Concerned with the tremendous industrial-population explosion in the Houston/Galveston area, the Board asked the State Health Department and the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department to conduct an extensive survey of the Galveston Bay Area. The survey area was to include the East Bay, West Bay, Trinity Bay, Galveston Bay, Clear Creek and Clear Lake, Houston Ship Channel, Dickinson Bayou, Highland Bayou, and chocolate Bayou. Between March 1-April 1, 1964, samples were gathered and given to the University of Texas Center for Research in Water Resources to analyse. After the initial report, the Board announced that the State Health Dept. and the Parks and Wildlife would continue the Galveston Bay Survey to maintain surveillance.en_US
