Galveston Bay is the largest, the most used, and the most productive bay on the Texas Gulf Coast. Continued municipal, industrial, and agricultural developments around Galveston Bay, as well as the diversion of fresh waters, will seriously affect the quality of the Bay waters and the regional development around the Bay unless remedial action is undertaken. To evaluate alternative measures for maintaining a suitable quality, it is necessary to immediately undertake a study project which has as its major objectives the determination of the functional relationships between incremental levels of water quality, the cost of achieving these levels, and the benefits that may be associated with each of the alternatives. To accomplish these objectives, certain basic studies must be made on the Bay system.
