Houston-Galveston Region: Bacteria Implementation Group
About the Group
The Bacteria Implementation Group is a regional governing body whose creation was facilitated by the Houston-Galveston Area Council (H-GAC). The BIG was formed to develop and implement a regional plan to reduce bacteria concentrations in impaired lakes, bayous, and streams in the Houston metropolitan area.
The BIG is coordinating public participation in improving Houston-area waterways. Meetings of the BIG are open to everyone. Meeting records are available on the BIG’s website .
On January 30, 2013, the commission approved the stakeholder-developed implementation plan to reduce bacteria in waterways of the greater Houston Area. View an archived Webcast of the commissioners’ meeting.
