Protecting & Restoring Long Island's Peconic Bays
The PEP has completed its 2020 Comprehensive Conservation Management Plan (CCMP)!
The Peconic National Estuary Program, The Peconic Estuary Partnership (PEP), has completed its 2020 Comprehensive Conservation Management Plan (CCMP). This guiding document establishes the framework for protecting clean water and healthy habitats on the East End of Long Island.
The PEP was established in 1992 under the EPA National Estuary Program as an “Estuary of National Significance” and adopted the first CCMP in 2001. As a National Estuary Program, PEP brings together all members of our community – Federal, State and local governments, non-profit organizations, businesses, academia and interested members of the public – to protect and restore the Peconic Estuary and its watershed.
The new CCMP (2020) lays out a roadmap for protecting and restoring the Peconic Estuary and its watershed and will carry us forward through the next ten years.
The 2020 CCMP includes fresh goals and actions which will strengthen our partnership and bring us together to tackle the issues we face together. Our new Goals: Strong Partnerships, Resilient Communities, Clean Water, and a Healthy Ecosystem are the four pillars of our foundation; our renewed focus on partnership will enable us to grow and meet the challenges of the next decade.
Our partnership is our greatest tool to help us achieve the goals and actions outlined in the 2020 CCMP.
We welcome the next decade of working together to follow the plan we built together for the protection and restoration of our Estuary.
