CapeCodOnline: Two projects to improve water quality in more than 270 acres of saltwater creeks and marshes [on Cape Cod] will get nearly $7.5 million in U.S. Department of the Interior funds intended to restore natural coastal storm defenses in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.
“It’s definitely a great wetland restoration project. That’s its primary purpose,” said Chatham Health and Environment Director Robert Duncanson. “We’re definitely happy the money came through.”
Both projects also reduce the costs of wastewater cleanup by millions of dollars as well.
