The New York-New Jersey Harbor & Estuary Program released its 2017-2022 Action Agenda. The Action Agenda identifies five long-term goals, 17 objectives, and 40 specific actions that will help enable people and wildlife to benefit from the fishable and swimmable waters called for by the Clean Water Act. The 2017 Action Agenda highlights the shared priorities of the NY-NJ Harbor & Estuary Program (HEP) and its partners, including IEC. In addition to the Action Agenda, HEP also released its 2018 State of The Estuary Report, and 2018 Environmental Monitoring Plan, at its Science and Action conference on November 16th, 2018. The supporting documents helped shape the priorities reflected in the Action Agenda, and provide the roadmap for how the Program will collectively implement, monitor, and evaluate our success going forward. IEC remains committed to assisting HEP and our regional partners implement the work of the Action Agenda to improve and protect our shared waters.
