Abstract A heavy outpouring of funds, manpower, and coordinated research and management effort in every sector, both public and private is required to respond to the environmental needs of society. The Chesapeake Bay system is used as an example of an easily definable and describable area from the heavily industrialized and populated northeast coast of the United States. Maryland's economy, style of life, and quality of life are almost entirely dependent upon the specific nature of the Bay and its environmental characteristics and balance. Some examples are presented of ecological consequences of certain decisions which resulted in environmental changes to the system: The proposed widening and deepening of the Chesapeake and Delaware canal will result in a loss of freshwater flow and possible increased salinities; Steam electric stations are rapidly being located in coastal regions.
