In May 2009, the Federal Leadership Committee for the Chesapeake Bay was created by the President of the United States (Executive Order no. 13508).
The largest estuary in North America, the Chesapeake Bay Watershed, covers 64,000 square miles, and includes over 150 rivers and streams that drain into the Bay. More than 300 species of fish, shellfish and crab species and a wide array of other wildlife call the Bay home.
Each year, the Committee is required to issue a Chesapeake Bay Action Plan, and an annual Progress Report.
The Committee is composed of representatives from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and the U.S. Departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Defense, Homeland Security, Interior, and Transportation.
