Since 1966, Bayou Preservation Association has been striving to protect and restore the richness and diversity of our waterways, and we encourage all the concerned citizens to join us in the stewardship of our watersheds.
Learn how to report damage to the bayous, illegal dumping or other polluting activities, logjams or other impediments to flow or accumulations of trash?
The guide is created for communities who
own land along one of the bayous, for those who have detention swales, diversion swales, rain gardens and/or ponds on their properties and for agencies who have some responsibility for bayou maintenance.
This guide is designed to better utilize our extensive bayou system, which extends through 22 watersheds.
Our bayou corridors can and should serve a vital role providing parklands, open green spaces and water amenities.
Public Comment Letters
Texas Department of Transportation, Interstate 10 at White Oak Bayou.
The proposed project would raise the elevation of the existing I-10 main lanes above the floodplain of White Oak Bayou from Heights Blvd. to I-45. The proposed construction area would be approximately 1.8 miles in length. The project also includes the construction of a 21.7-acre detention pond located on the north side of I-10 between Taylor St. and Houston Ave. and would construct a 10-foot shared use path on the north side of I-10 along White Oak Bayou between Studemont St. and I-45.
