Protecting & Restoring Long Island's Peconic Bays

The CCMP Revision

Have your voice heard in PEP’s Plan to protect the Peconic. Do you live, visit, work, or recreate around the Peconic Estuary? Help PEP take care of one of the “Last great places in the Western Hemisphere”.

The PEP is currently revising our blueprint for protecting and preserving the Peconic Bays. Be a part of our program’s future!

Improving water quality in the Peconic Estuary is a complex issue and requires the cooperation and coordination of multiple groups. We are calling upon our stakeholders including business owners, concerned citizens, local organizations, experts and government officials to participate in this process. We want to hear from you, what issues do you think are most important and which should be addressed in the new CCMP.

The most effective CCMP is one that is a true representation of the East End population’s interests and voice.

Peconic Estuary Program is currently in the 1st phase of public input. Please click here to view the Proposed Schedule for the CCMP Revision Process. We held multiple public meetings  to get your feedback on the CCMP Revision in the end of May.
