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 Continuation project (#19-53), implemented by TWRI, Angelina & Neches River Authority, and Stephen F. Austin State University from June 2019 through May 2021. It was funded by a State Nonpoint Source grant from the Texas State and Soil Water Conservation Board. The goals of this project were to facilitate and support effective implementation of the Attoyac Bayou WPP, to engage local stakeholders and seek input on future activities, to monitor water quality to illustrate implementation effectiveness, 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.
