Section 208 Plan Update

Cape Cod’s final Section 208 Areawide Water Quality Management Plan Update was certified by Gov. Charlie Baker in June 2015 and approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on September 15, 2015.

The Cape Cod Commission developed and drafted the 208 Plan Update. It is a watershed-based approach to restore embayment water quality on Cape Cod. The plan recommends strategies, regulatory reforms and a process for communities to reduce or eliminate excess nitrogen, the primary cause of degraded conditions.
