Pelicans Flock to Bayou Chico

The environmental health of Bayou Chico has greatly improved over the past 20 years. With such improvements as County stormwater runoff projects, closure of the sewage treatment plant, and stopping industrial waste dumping into the bayou, Bayou Chico has had time to cleanse herself of most of the pollutants that affected her in the earlier part of the 20th century. Pelicans, gulls, and a host of other waterfowl now call Bayou Chico home.
