Comments are being accepted on the New York / New Jersey Harbor Estuary Program’s Draft Five-Year Action Agenda until July 14th. The document includes 35 actions that the agencies, scientists, and civic organizations that comprise HEP will carry out to work towards shared goals for water quality, habitat restoration, public access, port and maritime management, and public participation and education. Comments will be reviewed by the HEP staff, who welcome additional input on objectives and actions that speak to HEP’s unique role convening partners, producing and disseminating science and data, and advancing effective management across jurisdictional boundaries, as well as potential collaborations for implementing the proposed activities. A final Action Agenda will be released in 2018.
