This report's findings highlight the valuable role that point sources and agriculture play in the restoration of the Bay. The very fact that five of the six practices chosen are agricultural further underscores the costliness of poorly planned urban development in the watershed. Despite the challenges that lie ahead, the options identified in Cost-Effective Strategies for the Bay should be encouraging. Our analysis shows that significant nutrient reductions can take place with a targeted investment of public dollars. Most of the remaining reductions will be urban and these challenges will be enormous. The Commission choose to tackle this subject in a future report.
