State Matches Funds With Barnstable County for Water Quality Monitoring Program

The state has given Barnstable County $250,000 in matching funds to expand its marine water quality monitoring to include all estuaries and near shore stations.

Under the terms of the grant, the county will use $250,000 of its own funds and $250,000 from the state to expand its monitoring program to include not just the existing ongoing monitoring of water quality at selected stations in Nantucket Sound, but to incorporate the monitoring of Buzzards Bay and Cape Cod Bay as well.
