The problems facing the nation's estuaries do not fit into existing conventional pollution control programs based solely on regulations and enforcement. Neither do they fit neatly into the traditional, restricted definition of 'water pollution'. Rather, they involve complex issues of habitat protection, multimedia and nonpoint source pollution, land-use planning, and resource management. Congress established the National Estuary Program (NEP) precisely to address these issues. Under the Clean Water Act, the program is to show how estuaries (and other ecosystems) can be protected and their living resources enhanced through comprehensive, action-oriented management that: identifies the probable causes of major environmental problems in estuaries of national significance; promotes and sustains long-term state and local commitment to solving the problems; generates meaningful public involvement and participation; focuses existing regulatory, institutional, and financial resources to act on identified problems; and encourages innovative management approaches.
