State to Give Cape Cod $3.4M for Regional Wastewater Plan

The Cape will soon receive a $3.5 million grant from the state to help put together a regional wastewater plan.


The Massachusetts Water Pollution Abatement Trust is expected to approve the $3.5 million grant to the Cape Cod Commission at its meeting next week, according to the Cape Cod Times.

Lawmakers have estimated that the cost to deal with the Cape’s wastewater crisis could reach $8 billion.

State Senator Dan Wolf supported the grant and has urged all towns on the Cape to work together towards a regional solution.

“This is a major step forward for one of my top priorities, to make Cape Cod’s bays, ponds, and estuaries pristine once again, restored to health by planning regionally, collaborating and acting locally, leaving a profound legacy for future generations,” said Sen. Dan Wolf in a statement. “We applaud Governor Patrick, Secretary Sullivan and Commissioner Kimmell for their vision and crucial support, while we celebrate all the people in our communities who have worked long and hard to remove this environmental threat.”
