Restoration of multiple wetlands in the Magnolia Beach
Texas AgriLife Research will create a construction and financing plan for restoration in the interconnected wetlands in Calhoun County, Texas. A large expanse of degraded wetlands stretches from Magnolia Beach to Indianola in Calhoun County. The wetlands are hydrologically-connected, yet suffer due to a lack of tidal flow at various points in the tidal channel network. The wetlands extend across multiple properties, agencies, and jurisdictions, and thus restoration will require a concerted effort that involves all of the parties.
Coastal Natural Hazards Response
Commencement of work on this project is contingent upon approval from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
