The Cape Cod Water Protection Collaborative exists to offer a coordinated approach to enhance the water and wastewater management efforts of towns, the Regional Government and the broader community. The Collaborative seeks to protect Cape Cod’s shared water resources and to provide access to cost effective and environmentally sound wastewater infrastructure. The Collaborative seeks funding support for the Cape communities, establishes priorities, directs strategy, builds support for action, and fosters regionalism.

The Collaborative functions using the following structure:

  • The Collaborative shall be managed by a 17-member Governing Board composed of multi-faceted, managerially-experienced persons representing each participating Town and Barnstable County.
  • Each Town joining the Collaborative shall appoint a representative and the Commissioners shall appoint two at-large representatives to serve nominal two-year terms as members of the Governing Board.
  • The Steering Committee, a five-member executive management body, shall be in session as often as needed between regular meetings of the full Governing Board in order to provide timely policy direction and to take decisive management actions as needed.
  • Three members of the Steering Committee shall be appointed by the Governing Board from within its member Towns, and the other two Steering Committee members shall be the same individuals appointed to the Governing Board by the Commissioners.
  • The Governing Board and Steering Committee shall routinely consult with and receive support from a Technical Advisory Committee for research regarding wastewater technologies, and for engineering and technical assistance on wastewater system capabilities, development, operation and maintenance.
  • The Governing Board meets monthly and the Steering Committee meets as necessary. View current meeting schedule, meeting agendas and meeting minutes.

The Cape Cod Water Protection Collaborative was created in 2005 by county ordinance. The ordinance was revised and replaced in June 2017.
