Lake Houston: Wetland Demonstration and Education Exhibits
Since 2006, high levels of bacteria have been documented in the northwest portion of Lake Houston, a primary recreation and drinking water resource for Houston and vicinity. Action items in the Source Water Protection Strategy for the lake include constructed wetlands and public education about nonpoint source pollution.
The City of Houston will build a large-scale demonstration wetland and monitor its effect on the levels of bacteria entering the lake. More than 30 educational and interactive exhibits have been installed at the WaterWorks Science and Education Center.
