Action Plan (2011 - 2015)


The Action Plan (pdf), revised in April 2011 is organized around five major themes or goals: Clean Up Pollution in the Estuary; Habitat and Ecological Health; Improve Public Access; Support an Economically and Ecologically Viable Estuary and Port; and Public Education and Community Involvement.

This is a working document that will be updated periodically to reflect new information, evolving priorities, and progress on recommended priorities. It is meant to be an organizing instrument used to assist with the implementation of the major actions in HEP’s Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan.
