The report summarizes the public participation program developed and implemented by the Houston-Galveston Area Council (H-GAC) to embrace the intent of the Federal Water Pollution Control Act Amendments of 1972 (FWPCA). The H-GAC was designated as the planning agency responsible for Areawide Waste Treatment Management Plans for the Greater Houston Area pursuant to Section 208 of the FWPCA. The authors of the FWPCA realized that in order to ensure successful planning for and implementation of the objectives of the Clean Water Act, public participation must be an integral part of the planning and decision-making process. The Public Participation Program for the Greater Houston Area 208 Plan utilizes Federal documents describing requirements and methods for public participation and also extends into other areas of distribution, citizen education, involvement and plan review.
