APCC is working with the town of Barnstable, Horsley Witten Group, andthe Barnstable Clean Water Coalition (formerly Three Bays Preservation) on a three-year project to help clean up the Three Bays watershed through improved stormwater management. The team completed a watershed field assessment this spring to identify sites where installation of green infrastructure stormwater treatment systems could help address the problem. These low impact designs, which incorporate the use of plants, work to capture rain water and remove nitrogen, bacteria and other pollutants before they wash into the bays.
An initial prioritization of sites has been completed and two or more of these projects will be constructed.
Join us at one of the upcoming public meetings for an overview and an opportunity to provide input on the projects being considered for construction.
