The Urban Bay Action Program (1) identifies priority problem areas of contamination; (2) identifies current, historical, and potential sources of contamination; (3) establishes schedules to take corrective actions to eliminate existing problems and to investigate potential problems; (4) identifies appropriate agencies for implementing corrective actions; and (5) ensures the implementation of the resulting plan. The first two of these four objectives of the action program were met and documented in an earlier report titled Sinclair and Dyes Inlets Initial Data Summaries and Problem Identification. The third and fourth objectives were met and are contained within the 1990 Action Plan. The fifth objective, plan implementation, will be documented in future updates and revisions of the action plan. The action plan represents the concerted efforts and commitments of many regulatory agencies and local governments to reduce contamination in Sinclair and Dyes Inlets. Corrective actions may include both source controls and remedial (cleanup) actions such as capping or removal of contaminated sediments. Source controls may include permit revisions to require reduction of contaminant concentrations or volumes of discharges, or application of control techniques to reduce contamination of surface runoff. In addition, the following levels and types of actions are also included: planning and program development actions, sampling and longer term monitoring actions, resource enhancement actions, and educational actions.
