Authors: Emily Monroe, Lucas Gregory, Matthew McBroom, Jeremiah Poling

The Attoyac Bayou Watershed Protection Plan (WPP) was developed by the Attoyac Bayou Watershed Partnership in 2009 to address the bacteria impairment in the watershed. This report covers the Attoyac Bayou Watershed Protection Plan Implementation Effectiveness Monitoring and Facilitation project (#16-12), implemented by TWRI, Angelina & Neches River Authority, and Stephen F. Austin State University from October 2017 through September 2019. It was funded by a Clean Water Act 319(h) grant from the Texas State and Soil Water Conservation Board through the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The goals of this project were to facilitate effective implementation of the Attoyac Bayou WPP, to engage local stakeholders and seek input on future activities, to encourage, track and assist with procuring financial assistance for adopting best management practices, and to coordinate and conduct relevant outreach and education activities in and around the watershed.
