The initial effort consists of identifying currently available data and soliciting local area expertise, including members of the Numeric Nutrient Criteria Technical Advisory Committee (Nutrients TAC). The purpose of the meeting is to solicit and discuss information regarding nutrients and documented associations between nutrients and ecological conditions within the estuaries. While not intended as a meeting of the Nutrients TAC, one or more members of the Nutrients TAC may participate and provide comments at this meeting.

A copy of the agenda is attached.
