​​​GALVESTON – A group of state and federal agencies yesterday released a draft plan that would allocate $45.7 million in Deepwater Horizon recovery money to 13 coastal restoration projects.

The Texas Trustee Implementation Group, which includes three state and four federal agencies, reviewed more than 800 proposed restoration projects for funding. The following were included in the draft plan:

  • one oyster restoration engineering project in the Galveston Bay area;
  • three habitat engineering projects in the Galveston Bay area;
  • five habitat construction projects in the Galveston Bay, Sabine Lake, and Corpus Christi Bay areas; and
  • four habitat acquisition projects in the Galveston Bay, Matagorda Bay, and Lower Laguna Madre areas.

The draft plan is available for public review and comment through June 19. It will also be discussed at public meetings next month in Corpus Christi and Galveston.
