GBW Aquatic Debris Database


Erin Kinney

HARC has been gathering data from the Partners in Litter Prevention to get an idea of the breadth and scope of the metrics, locations, and methods used around the region. Next we will begin discussions on what the interface should look like for uploading and for downloading/viewing the data. Our goal is the build a flexible, accessible database for the region. We are also working with KTB and collaborating with other partners around the state to expand that regional database to serve partners state wide.


This webpage was set up to communicate and share our progress as we initiate, develop and begin acting on the Galveston Bay Watershed Aquatic Debris Action Plan:
A regional partnership plan for addressing litter and marine debris. 
Please note the purpose of this action plan is to serve as a guidance document or a central point of reference for improved collaboration and coordination among the multitude of stakeholders across the greater Galveston Bay Watershed to avoid duplication and optimize the efficiency and efficacy of efforts.

The document is not intended to be regulatory or specifically binding on actions or timeframes.
