Environmental Assessment for McCollum Park Project, Chambers County, Texas (August 2009)

Main Content
McCollum Park is one of 14 public parks located in Chambers County. It is located on approximately 12 acres. Visitors come to McCollum Park for the birding, camping, fishing and access to the bay shore. As a direct result of the storm surge and intense wave action from Hurricane Ike, McCollum Park experienced severe erosion along its shoreline. The shoreline has continued to erode since Hurricane Ike hit in September 2008. Due to this erosion, the bay shoreline along the park has been fenced off to protect visitors from falling approximately 14 feet down the eroded embankment; therefore the bay is currently inaccessible from the park. In addition, continued erosion places the covered picnic areas, large oak trees and other park amenities at risk of being lost completely. The purpose of the proposed project is to provide protection to McCollum Park and the park amenities landward of the shoreline and to restore bay access for park visitors.
