Updating the Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan

In early 2012, LISS began the process of updating its Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan (CCMP). This effort has involved reviewing program progress, soliciting stakeholder and public input, and developing a framework for the Update. A draft CCMP Update was released on Sept. 8 to be followed by a two-month period for public comment. Public meetings also have been scheduled for September (see right column).

We encourage you to visit the links below to learn more about the environmental conditions affecting Long Island Sound, the Long Island Sound Study’s role in management efforts to restore and protect the Sound,  and the CCMP Update process. We also welcome your comments about the Plan.

Public comments on the document will be accepted via email and post until Saturday, November 8, 2014. Emailed comments should be sent to contact@watervisionllc.com. Mailed comments should be sent to:

EPA Long Island Sound Office

Stamford Government Center
888 Washington Blvd.
Stamford, CT 06904-2152

At the close of the public comment period, the Long Island Sound Study will prepare a public responsiveness document that summaries and responds to all comments provided on the CCMP. Upon completion of the public review and comment period, the LISS will revise the CCMP and submit it to the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation for approval.

Below are links to help guide you to understanding the CCMP update process:
