The President's national security strategy envisions a healthy and growing economy, wise environmental stewardship and a strong military as part of his plan to meet and to fulfill the nation's security needs of the 1990s. Maritime activities are a nationally significant institution that is crucial to this strategy -- not only to our economic strength but also to our military strength. Maintenance of navigation channels and construction of harbor improvements are essential to the nation's maritime activities. Maritime activities in San Francisco Bay face a challenge. Solutions to the region's dredging and disposal issues must be found that protect the environment while allowing for economic development. The Long-Term Management Strategy was established to meet this challenge and is actively addressing regional dredged material disposal demands to provide for this aspect of local maritime activities.
