dc.description.abstract The Galveston Bay National Estuary Program was established under the authority of the Water Quality Act of 1987 to develop a Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan for Galveston Bay. The Galveston Bay Plan is that plan. The purpose of The Galveston Bay Plan is to address threats to the bay resulting from pollution, development, and overuse. To address these threats, five years of work commenced in 1990, consisting of three phases: (1) identification of the specific problems facing the bay; (2) a bay-wide effort to compile data and information to describe status, trends, and probable causes related to the identified problems; and (3) creation of The Plan itself to enhance governance of the bay at the ecosystem level. The GBNEP accomplished this work through a cooperative agreement between the U.S. EPA (Region 6) and the State of Texas (administered by the Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission). en_US
