Officials to Discuss Bayou Chico Restoration

 

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection has invited stakeholders, government representatives, scientists, environmental organizations, agricultural operators and others, to attend a meeting (December 11, Pensacola, FL) that will provide updates on the ongoing restoration plan for Bayou Chico.

We thank our stakeholders for their dedication to restoring Bayou Chico,” said Tom Frick, director of the Division of Environmental Assessment and Restoration. “While there is more work to be done, we can be proud of the improvements we have accomplished so far.”

The day of the annual update meeting, DEP representatives will also be hosting a “Maps on the Table” exercise for the waterbodies.

The restoration plan, known as a basin management action plan or BMAP, covers Bayou Chico and six water body segments, all of which flow into Bayou Chico and the bay: Jones Creek, Jackson Creek, Bayou Chico Drain, Bayou Chico Beach, Bayou Chico proper and Sanders Beach.

BMAPs are long-term plans developed in collaboration with stakeholders that identify strategies and projects to eliminate or reduce pollutant sources and restore the waterbody to health.
