Large Blog ImageBarnstable County is very proud to announce that the Environmental Protection Agency awarded a competitive grant, in the amount of $66,468.00, to the Cape Cod Cooperative Extension for its proposal to conduct a comparative study of stormwater treatment systems in two towns on Cape Cod.  The project will allow the County to gather data to determine the effectiveness of different stormwater treatment systems in reducing nutrient loads to coastal waters.

Fantastic job by Cape Cod Cooperative Extension, the Barnstable County Resource Development Office and all involved in this important initiative.
