Over the past decade, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and its Chesapeake Bay Program partners have maintained a systematic approach for the use of this information to inform the public about the state of the Bay, to establish measurable restoration goals, and to inform many other program management decisions. EPA believes that much of the progress of this restoration program can be attributed to its partnership approach and the participants' willingness to set bold, long-term environmental goals and to use environmental and other outcome measures to set bold, long-term environmental goals and to use environmental and other outcome measures to monitor results and inform the public. Lessons learned from this program may be of particular interest to other natural resource agencies and to any governmental entity with interest in outcome-based management.
