Stormwater Managment

Bioswale diagram

The Town, with consultants Horsley Witten and Association to Preserve Cape Cod (APCC), is developing stormwater improvement projects to decrease the nutrients entering the Schoolhouse Ministers Pond.. One of the stormwater projects, a wet swale, will occur at Fisherman's Landing, behind the Eastham Elementary School. A second stormwater improvement project, still in development phase, could occur on the state highway side of Schoolhouse Ministers Pond. Please see the presentations by APCC and Horsley Witten for more information.

A video about the wet swale at Fisherman's Landing can be found here.
