New Galveston Bay Action Network app provides easy, effective way to report pollution

GBF_0Galveston Bay Foundation (GBF) has put the power of protecting Galveston Bay in the community’s hands. GBF recently launched the Galveston Bay Action Network as a downloadable mobile app for iPhone and Android. This app allows users to report any land or water pollution within minutes. Reports are automatically sent to the proper authority, resulting in the quickest response to get the pollution cleaned up. The Galveston Bay Action Network app is free and can now be downloaded from the iTunes App Store and Google Play.

“The Galveston Bay Action Network app is innovative because it provides one place for people in all four counties surrounding the Bay (Galveston, Harris, Brazoria, Chambers) to report pollution with the push of a button,” said Sarah Gossett, GBF’s Water Quality Volunteer Coordinator. “They don’t have to do the work of figuring out who to call or where to go.”

The app also provides information on how to identify various types of pollution.

“No one knows their community better than the people living there,” said Nate Johnson, GBF water programs manager. “It’s the residents who are usually the first to notice a pollution problem, such as illegal discharge or dumping, and we want to make sure everyone has a way to easily report any pollution they may come across,” he said.

The Galveston Bay Action Network app is a tool for everyone in the Houston-Galveston area, and can be used as far north as Spring-Cypress and as far east as Anahuac. Ultimately, GBF hopes people will use this app to ensure that both their local communities and Galveston Bay are safe and free from illegal pollution.
