EPA: Considerable Progress Implementing 208 Plan

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has accepted and incorporated the 2017 Implementation Report drafted by the Cape Cod Commission into the “208” Cape Cod Water Quality Management Plan Update.

In doing so, the EPA noted the considerable progress made in implementing that plan by the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection, the Cape Cod Commission, as well as Cape Cod’s towns.

The 2017 Implementation Report is a review of the progress toward local, regional, and state regulatory changes intended to meet the challenges of non-point source nutrient pollution detailed in the “208” Plan Update.

The EPA requested the next implementation update be issued by April 2019.
