The Chesapeake Bay is regarded as one of the most valuable estuaries in the world and is used extensively for fishing, recreation, navigation, and waste assimilation. This extensive utilization has resulted in an ever increasing stress on the ability of the Bay to accomodate the diverse and often conflicting demands made upon it. To determine the magnitude, extent, and source of nutrient loadings to the Chesapeake Bay, data from a water quality survey of the major tributary watersheds (the Susquehanna, the Patuxent, the Potomac, the Rappahannock, the Mattaponi, the Pamunkey, the Chickahominy, and the James) have been evaluated and are presented in this report.
