Galveston Bay National Estuary Program


Most significant activities which occur in the Galveston Bay system will have some federal involvement. These activities have the potential to conflict with the goals and policies of the Galveston Bay Plan, developed under the Water Quality Act of 1987 by the Galveston Bay National Estuary Program. The Water Quality Act's provision for consistency review is the basis for creation of an effective and efficient process to help assure that federal activities are compatible with the aims of The Galveston Bay Plan during its implementation. This report summarizes the consistency review activities to be undertaken during implementation of The Galveston Bay Plan, and is written to be a supplement for The Plan, as submitted to The Governor of Texas and Administrator of EPA.
