Galveston Bay National Estuary Program


The Galveston Bay Plan is the result of five years of research and planning by the Galveston Bay National Estuary Program Management conference. This report describes how Plan implementation will be led by a newly created Galveston Bay Program of the Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission and outlines the major roles of other federal, state, and local governments, stakeholders, and the public. A summary table of agency responsibilities for each of the The Plan's actions is also included in this document. This report also identifies the possible enforceable policies in each of The Plan's actions and cites the relevant federal and/or state statutory and regulatory basis for enforcement.
