USACE Releases Draft EA for Brownsville Restoration Study

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Galveston District, in partnership with Brownsville Public Utilities Board (BPUB) has released the draft Integrated Feasibility Report and Environmental Assessment (EA) for the Resacas at Brownsville Ecosystem Restoration Study in Cameron County, Texas.

According to the Corps,  the goal of the study is to identify degraded areas for potential habitat restoration that would facilitate the creation of valuable yet limited wildlife transportation corridors through the City of Brownsville.

The study area includes three separate resaca systems: Resaca del Ranch Viejo stretching west to east across the northern portion of the city of Brownsville, Resaca de la Guerra transecting the middle portion of the city, and the Town Resaca system located at the southern end of the city.

USACE will hold a public information meeting on the study today June 14, 2017 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm at the Ringgold Civic Pavilion in Brownsville.

The Corps will also accept written public comments on the integrated report for a 30-day period starting on June 12, 2017 and continuing through July 12, 2017.
