Every five years the Tampa Bay Estuary Program reports progress towards goals to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to ensure that the Program is making adequate progress implementing its Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan (CCMP). This is a requirement for the Program under the Clean Water Act (CWA) funding guidance.

The documents listed below make up this report and have been produced to fulfill the guidelines of this evaluation.
