It means something a little different when you’re talking about taking a load off a waterway. A group of regional planners and public officials are working to reduce pollution in Brazoria County watersheds and waterways, and the next step for the Chocolate Bay watershed is putting together a plan to do something about it.

Chocolate Bayou runs from between Iowa Colony and Manvel to next to Liverpool, and generally southeasterly toward Chocolate Bay. It’s one of the county’s impaired waterbodies in that it fails to meet the state’s water standards.

If not to clean water standards then action must be implemented
