Dickinson Bayou Wetland Restoration Project - Phase II Construction

Summary

Texas Parks and Wildlife Department will restore 10 acres and enhance and protect 17.7 acres of intertidal emergent marsh. This restoration project will enhance water quality by increasing circulation and reducing nutrients in the water column of an impaired water body. Additional benefits of the restored marsh will be increased fish and shellfish production, enhanced recreational fishing opportunities, enhanced bird and wildlife watching opportunities, and erosion protection for existing wetland habitats that are integral to the Texas Gulf coast and the Galveston Bay estuarine ecosystem.
