Bon Secour Watershed
The Bon Secour River, Oyster Bay, Skunk Bayou Watershed Management Plan, 2017 has been released.
A Watershed Management Plan is an essential first step in preserving water quality in a relatively pristine, tidally-influenced watershed and mitigating the impacts of future development pressures. The watershed planning process utilizes a stakeholder led process to characterize existing conditions, identify and prioritize problems, define management objectives, and develop and implement protection or remediation strategies as necessary.
The Mobile Bay National Estuary Program has awarded the WMP contract to a consultant, Volkert Inc., who will work with Louis Berger, and Allen Engineering on the public participation activities. A diverse Steering Committee has been appointed to guide the process. This committee, which represents a broad range of interests in the watershed, is a working group that will serve as advocates for Bon Secour and help make recommendations about the process and the substance of the vision.
