Estuaries and other coastal and marine waters are national resources increasingly threatened by pollution, habitat loss, coastal development, and resource conflicts. Congress established the National Estuary Program (NEP) under the Water Quality Act of 1987 to pioneer a broad and innovative approach to respond to these threats. The NEP, managed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), identifies nationally significant estuaries and supports the development of comprehensive management plans to ensure their ecological integrity. Ultimately, these activities result in a comprehensive conservation and management plan (CCMP) for the estuary. The first section describes the requirements for approvable CCMPs. This guidance does not mandate the format in which the CCMP contents are presented.
