Hurricane Harvey: Water Patrol Boat

As the waters begin to recede in Houston, the ecological threats from the numerous oil and gas refineries, chemical plants, and wastewater treatment facilities are quickly being revealed, and these impacts will be devastating to water quality, wildlife and aquatic species, and human health.  

Bayou City Waterkeeper is just beginning to assess the potential impacts and is in need of a small motor boat to conduct patrols throughout Houston, document and assess pollution threats, hold industry accountable, and work to protect the waterways of Houston.

It is looking like many parts of Houston will be under water for several weeks.  We hope to gather the funds for this boat as soon as possible to ensure that we can immediately begin to document the scope of the problem, inform the community of the threats, and begin the process of cleaning up and rebuilding in an informed manner in order to avoid these type of ecological disasters in the future.

Thanks in advance, every little bit helps!  Follow bayou City Waterkeeper on Facebook for updates!
