乞沙比克灣流域乞沙比克灣計畫報告指出,協助減少因農業活動及城市發展而排入乞灣的廢水,雖已受到聯邦與州政府資助,但目前資金已呈現不足的狀態。偏低的溶氧量、水濁度升高與藻類的大量繁殖,迫使六個周邊的州政府與環保團體向聯邦要求資金,以復育這個全美第一大河口。

Poor dissolved oxygen levels, declining water clarity, and increased algal blooms have prompted the governors of all six Bay states and environmental groups to request federal funding to restore the nation's largest estuary.
