Several years ago the Herring River Technical Committee (HRTC), including a Stakeholder's Group, developed the technical issues, engaged local residents in addressing individual and community issues and produced a Conceptual Restoration Plan (CRP). The CRP served as the basis for approval by the Boards of Selectmen of Wellfleet and Truro and the Cape Cod National Seashore to proceed with detailed planning.
The Conceptual Restoration Plan contains a project overview and description, the existing environment
and assessment of the project impact, and much more.
