HARC and Texas A&M AgriLife Extension recently released a project report through a grant from the Texas General Land Office Coastal Management Program. The goals of the project were to assess the success of compensatory wetland mitigation in the Houston-Galveston metropolitan region by comparing permit requirements to on-the-ground mitigation sites. The team also enhanced a regional decision support tool to provide information to local governments and citizens, allowing them to access information describing potential development impacts to watersheds, wetlands and the ecosystem services that they provide.
