The Town of Barnstable Department of Public Works released the Draft Comprehensive Wastewater Management Plan (CWMP).  The Draft CWMP will guide wastewater collection, treatment, and disposal efforts in Barnstable for the next 30 years, with the primary goals of reducing nutrient enrichment of coastal estuaries and fresh water ponds as well as the protection of public water supplies.  Secondary goals include supporting economic growth and providing solutions in areas where it has traditionally been difficult to site on-site systems such as areas with high groundwater and poor soils.  The Draft CWMP relies on both traditional methods of addressing wastewater, in the form of centralized collection and treatment, but also invests heavily in alternative technologies in the short term to potentially minimize the need for centralized sewering in later phases of the plan.

The Town has been working since 2015 to develop a plan that meets the needs of the community as well as the requirements of the Cape Commission’s “208 Plan” that was released in 2017.  The “208 Plan” outlines the region’s plan to meet the requirements of the Federal Clean Water Act.
