The project was initiated in 1985 with the goal of studying existing federal, state, and local programs for protecting and preserving Cape Cod's sole-source aquifer. To meet this need, the Massachusetts Departmnt of Environmental Quality Engineering, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Region 1 in cooperation with the Cape Cod Planning and Economic and Development Commission and the U.S. Geological Survey initiated a two-year study to determine the adequacy of current groundwater protection programs and to recommend improvements. The document focuses on specific recommendations for the improvement of local, state, and federal programs to protect this resource.
