Port Houston Honored by HGAC for Bayport Berm Project

Posted by Port Houston on Jun 18, 2019 8:12:32 AM

Port Houston’s Bayport Berm Project was awarded for “Robust Community Involvement” at the Houston-Galveston Area Council’s (HGAC) Water Innovation Strategies of Excellence Awards.

The WISE Awards recognize innovative strategies and projects in the Houston-Galveston region that serve as models for improving water quality. The winning projects must exhibit efficiency, effectiveness and innovation.

“We are honored to be recognized for this achievement,” said Trae Camble, director of environmental affairs for Port Houston. “We had a number of volunteers participate in the community with us on this project, and our commitment to environmental leadership is an important part of our organizational best practices.”

The Bayport Berm Project supported the development of the new vegetation sight-and-sound berm near the Bayport Container Terminal. The new Seabrook sight and sound berm is a culmination of years of careful planning and industry partnerships. This vegetated berm will provide enhanced mitigation of sound near the Bayport Container Terminal for both the El Jardin and Seabrook communities, while also beautifying the area.

The Port Houston Trees program with Houston Wilderness, a community tree planting project, was also recognized during the ceremony.
