For many years, scientists and resource managers have recognized that exposure to toxic contaminants can result in adverse effects on biological resources with the Chesapeake Bay and its watersheds. In 2010, the Chesapeake Bay Program (CBP), a Federal-jurisdictional partnership, reported that 72 percent of the Bay's partnership, reported that 72 percent of the Bay's tidal-water segments are fully or partially impaired as a result of the presence of toxic contaminants.
