Abstract : This report represents the culmination of a two-year, three-phase effort to determine the relative impact of DoD activities on the water quality and living resource of the Chesapeake Bay. Phase I defined the recent historical and present pollution potential of all 66 DoD installations in the Bay's drainage basin, and developed a preliminary screening procedure to categorize these installations according to existing or potential impacts on the Bay and its tributaries. Phase II developed and tested a detailed assessment methodology on six installations to define the character and extent of their impact on the Bay. Phase III applied this testbed methodology to the remaining 31 installations identified in Phase I as needing more detailed assessment, and summarizes impacts and program recommendations from an installation, regional, and Bay-wide perspective. This volume 1 presents summary information from this analysis.
