Welcome to EAHCP

EAHCP Aquatic Restoration | After three years of EAHCP efforts, a new report has been issued based on the lessons learned to date by the submerged aquatic vegetation restoration teams in the Comal and San Marcos spring and river systems. This report, available below for review, was commissioned by the EAHCP Implementing Committee in November 2015.

EAHCP staff are currently assessing the management implications of the report’s findings (see “EAHCP Memo,” below), including possibly pursuing adaptive management. As this process moves forward over the latter part of 2016, please check back here for updates.
