Implementation Actions are developed by the Long Island Sound Study work groups to carry out the strategies, objectives, and outcomes of the Long Island Sound Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan (CCMP). These actions help the Long Island Sound Study decide what projects and investments are needed. The interactive table below shows each Implementation Action under the 2020-2024 CCMP Update by CCMP theme. For more information on the federal funds spent on these actions, please see our annual work plans or visit Partnership Projects. The table reports on the implementation actions’ progress, allocated federal funding, and relationship to the 20 Ecosystem Targets. Click on the “Filter Data Table” button below to view implementations actions connected to a specific CCMP theme or Ecosystem Target. By having this filtering option, you can better connect actions to environmental outcomes.
The Long Island Sound Study (LISS), established in 1985 under Section 320 and 119 of the Clean Water Act, is one of the inaugural EPA National Estuary Programs. EPA, joined with Connecticut and New York, established the LISS Management Conference – a partnership of federal and state agencies, user groups, concerned organizations, and individuals dedicated to improving the health of the Sound. First developed in 1994, the LISS issued a revised Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan in 2015. The plan is organized around four major themes: 1) Clean Waters and Healthy Watersheds (WW); 2) Thriving Habitats and Abundant Wildlife (HW); 3) Sustainable and Resilient Communities (SC); and 4) Sound Science and Inclusive Management (SM). Under each theme, there are set implementation actions which have been formulated to carry out each themes’ strategies to help meet the CCMP’s objectives and outcomes. Every 5 years, the LISS updates each themes’ implementation actions to successfully progress management targets relative to current successes, challenges, and gaps. In 2020, the LISS updated the CCMP Action Plan listing 136 implementation actions covering the period 2020-2024.
