Protecting The Bayous

Houston should act now to protect the hidden beauty of its bayous

Mary Ellen Whitworth

Special to Houston Business Journal

Over 2,500 miles of waterways traverse through greater Houston. What if each waterway had at least 50 feet of natural habitat? What if hike-and-bike trails were installed next to these natural areas (riparian zone)? There could be selected view corridors along the way so people could observe the flowing water and water inhabitants.

The benefits of these natural areas are increased wildlife, improved water quality and reduced erosion. Those who have canoed bayous such as Buffalo Bayou, Armand Bayou or Clear Creek know of this hidden beauty.
