Charting Buffalo: A Collaborative Study of Buffalo and Lower White Oak Bayous

Buffalo Bayou and lower White Oak Bayou watersheds.


The Charting Buffalo study covers 32 miles of Buffalo Bayou, from the Barker Reservoir to the Houston Ship Channel Turning Basin, and 7 miles of lower White Oak Bayou, from I-610 to its confluence with Buffalo Bayou near downtown.

The aim of this study is to facilitate a collaborative visionary plan that integrates flood damage reduction improvements along these bayous with other community and environmental interests. While the study is funded by the Harris County Flood Control District, many organizations that are already investing resources in the area are participating in the planning process.
