Oceans and Coasts

The EPA protects and restores ocean and coastal ecosystems by promoting watershed-based management, preventing aquatic pollution, managing ocean dumping sites, assessing coastal conditions, establishing effective partnerships and facilitating community-led science-based efforts. These programs help to ensure clean and safe waters that sustain human health, the environment and the economy.
