In early October the Natural Resources Conservation Service announced a new $10 million investment to support Phase II implementation of the Cape Cod Water Resources Restoration Project. This Cape-wide effort targets the restoration of degraded salt marshes, impaired fish passages, and stormwater pollution sources that impact shellfish habitat.  The Commonwealth is a co-sponsor of the Project, and through the work of DER and the Division of Marine Fisheries, helped partners complete many of the projects funded under Phase I from 2007-2013.

A portion of the Phase II funding is anticipated to support implementation of four DER priority restoration projects across the Cape.  DER staff look forward to working with Cape Cod towns, NRCS, and other partners to advance multiple projects through construction.
