Galveston Bay, the largest inland bay on the Texas coast, provides access to the principal ports of Houston, Texas City, and Galveston. The purpose of this comprehensive navigation study is to investigate the existing Federal projects serving these ports to determine the advisability of modifying these channels. Any proposed channel modification would be compatible with plans of other Federal, state, and local agencies, and would be designed to protect the surrounding environment and to preserve or enhance the economic and social well-being of the affected population.
