Cape Cod Commission Water Resources Analyst Tim Pasakarnis to chair regional monitoring committee
The Southeast New England Program (SNEP), a regional program working to protect and restore water quality, is collaborating with its committees, subcommittees, and regional partners, including the Commission, to identify data that will help track changes, establish indicators, and develop monitoring priorities and processes.
In September, Cape Cod Commission Water Resources Analyst Tim Pasakarnis was named the SNEP Monitoring Subcommittee's first-ever Chair. As Chair, Tim will represent the positions of the Monitoring subcommittee at SNEP Steering Committee meetings to better inform SNEP programmatic efforts. According to the EPA, the Monitoring Subcommittee will play a pivotal role in planning, developing, and reviewing the Program's monitoring and data synthesis strategies.
SNEP’s mission is to foster collaboration among regional partners across southeast New England's coastal watersheds to protect and restore water quality, ecological health, and diverse habitats by sharing knowledge and resources, promoting innovative approaches, and leveraging economic and environmental investments to meet the needs of current and future generations.
