The Pulse of the Bay aims to make the most important information available on water quality in the Bay accessible to water quality managers, decision-makers, scientists, and the public. The theme of the 2022 Pulse is "50 Years After the Clean Water Act." Nine different individuals or groups have contributed perspectives on progress to date and challenges ahead. This Pulse also includes summaries, with a historical perspective, on the major water quality parameters of concern in the Bay. We invite you to access the Pulse


You can request a hard copy of the Pulse, or if you have comments or questions, please contact Jay Davis: [email protected]

The RMP Update provides a concise overview of recent RMP activities and findings, and a look ahead to significant products anticipated in the next two years.
