The main objective of this study was to characterize the current status and spatial and temporal trends in permitted and nonpermitted point source loadings of constituents into the Galveston Bay system. Nonpermitted point sources were considered to be major tributaries. The overall and main objectives were accomplished through the following specific objectives: 1) Research and compile long-term point source loadings data; 2) Determine data gaps and the reliability of loading data sets; 3) Describe existing permitted point source loading and historical (temporal trends); 4) Determine spatial loading trends; 5) Determine cumulative loadings and identify potential problem areas; and 6) Prepare a final report.
