The objectives of the study are to identify and map unpermitted point source discharges within selected shoreline segments of Galveston Bay and to develop a standard methodology and framework for future comprehensive shoreline surveys of the Galveston Bay system. The pilot study utilized low altitude aerial surveys and shallow draft small boat surveys to determine the extent of and to document locations of unpermitted discharges along 159 miles of bayou and bay shoreline. Nine different shoreline types were surveyed. Positions of discharges, both permitted and unpermitted were logged on to a personal computer data base management system and photographic documentation of both aerial and surface observations were catalogued.
