Bon Secour

In 2015, the Mobile Bay National Estuary Program contracted Volkert, Inc., along with sub consultants Louis Berger and Allen Engineering and Science, to prepare a comprehensive Watershed Management Plan (WMP) for three interconnected watersheds in southern Alabama—Bon Secour River, Oyster Bay, and Skunk Bayou.

The purpose of this WMP is to guide watershed resource managers, policy makers, community organizations, and citizens in protecting the hydrological, biological, and cultural integrity of the Bon Secour River, Oyster Bay, and Skunk Bayou watershed to ensure that these resources are preserved for future generations. This plan was completed in 2017 and is available to view or download by clicking the links below under Final Plan.
