Help Save Galveston Bay

I was taking a look at Robb Walsh’s terrific blog looking for food and cooking tips and ran across a crisis in the making regarding Texas water flow plans for Galveston Bay. From his blog:

You really need to e-mail a comment to the TCEQ if you want your kids to know what oysters taste like. Under the current water flow plans, Galveston Bay oysters would cease to exist. If you don’t believe me, take a look at today’s Houston Chronicle. There’s a very timely article on the threat to the $2 billion Galveston Bay seafood industry and sport fishery that the new water plan represents. Bureaucrats in Austin don’t eat oysters and they don’t give a damn–so it’s up to you.

Comment by email to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality You must select “SB3/HB3″ as the subject of your message. Just write: “We need more fresh water for the oysters!” or something to that effect.

I followed above link to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality and filled out the form. It’s easy, it only takes a minute, and it’s really really important. Comments will be open until Dec. 20.
