Inter-Agency Cooperation for Coastal Protectionby Steven G. Halterman, Massachusetts Water Pollution, Control Div, Westborough, MA, USA,
Abstract: The complexity of the problems pertaining to the degradation of coastal waters is such that no single agency can adequately regulate and manage all activities that affect the water quality of our coastal areas. In Massachusetts a large number of state and federal agencies, as well as private concerns, are participating in various aspects of protecting the coastal environment. The major state and federal groups are outlined in the paper. Examples of interagency programs are presented, including a shellfish program, coastal zone management, and others.
