The Comprehensive Conservation
and Management Plan

The complete  Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan is available as a 205 page pdf document

In 1994, the states of Connecticut and New York and the United States Environmental Protection Agency approved the Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan for Long Island Sound. Developed by the Long Island Sound Study, the Plan identifies the specific commitments and recommendations for actions to improve water quality, protect habitat and living resources, educate and involve the public, improve the long-term understanding of how to manage the Sound, monitor progress, and redirect management efforts. Using the Plan as a blueprint, the Long Island Sound Study has continued to refine and add detail to commitments and priorities, including with the 1996 Long Island Sound Agreement and the 2003 Long Island Sound Agreement. You can learn of the goals of the Long Island Sound Study, and get an overview of the environmental issues affecting Long Island Sound by reading the Plan summary below or the full plan by downloading the 205 page pdf document.
