This is the third report in a series being developed to assist the US EPA implement its Near Coastal Waters and National Estuary Programs. It summarizes estimates of the relative susceptibility and status of 17 estuaries on the East Coast from Maine through Virginia, with respect to nutrient-related pollution. The information is intended to increase understanding of coastal environmental problems and to serve as a screening tool for coastal resource decision-making. A one-page summary is included in the report for each of the 17 estuaries in the East Coast region from Passamaquoddy Bay through Chesapeake Bay. Each summary contains data on significant physical and hydrologic features, estimations of nutrient loading, pollution susceptibility, and nutrient concentrations, along with a narrative to assist the reader in interpreting the data.
