Abstract
The Chesapeake Bay Program is the nation's premier ecosystem restoration and management effort, focusing on North America's largest estuary. Established in 1983 by the signing of the Chesapeake Bay Agreement, the Bay Program is a unique voluntary partnership between the states of Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Virginia; the District of Columbia; and Chesapeake Bay Commission, a tri-state legislative body; and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), representing the Federal government. The Chesapeake Bay Program relies on wide public support to carry out its multifaceted missions; employing methods that go beyond environmental laws and regulations by stressing voluntary compliance, strong commitments, and measurable goals. The Bay Program utilizes sound science and innovative methods to address: the prevention and abatement of pollution; the conservation and restoration of habitat, fish, and wildlife; the enhancement of public access to the Bay and its tributaries; public education; and the overall health of the Bay and its watershed.
