  • Description:
    This study discusses the environmental management of a typical ship channel-harbor complex located along the Texas Gulf Coast. The best current available literature was utilized along with a number of previous studies completed at Texas A&M University. This information was supplemented by a field study of the Port of Corpus Christi Inner Harbor and the Port of Brownsville Fishing Harbor, along with a non-point source pollution study of the Port of Brownsville watershed. The study explains the most important pollution sources, discusses their impact upon the waterways, outlines their priorities, provides a general solution for each, and presents a suggested plan of action. The long-range environmental implications of the various activities are discussed so that management entities may make competent decisions in future planning that are conducive to an active industrial climate and a healthy environment.
