The Galveston Bay Estuary Program — a non-regulatory program administered by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) — is committed to preserving Galveston Bay for generations to come. Established in 1989, we are one in a network of twenty-eight U.S. National Estuary Programs (NEPs) created to guide the conservation and restoration of estuaries of national significance.
The Estuary Program and its partners — local, state, and federal governments, businesses, industry, universities, conservation organizations and citizens — work together to implement the Galveston Bay Plan, a 20-year, science-based plan designed to protect and restore Galveston Bay.
