Long Island Sound Threat Assessment

LI Threat Assessment Final

With funding from the New England Interstate Water Pollution Control Commission (NEIWPCC) Regional Plan Association led groups of local stakeholders to produce an environmental threat assessment report for four sites around Long Island Sound. The sites chosen are actually comprised of all or part of five Stewardship Areas designated by the Long Island Sound Stewardship Initiative including Lower Connecticut River, Milford Point and Great Meadows in Connecticut and Pelham Bay and Mount Sinai - Port Jefferson Harbors in New York. The primary goal of the Environmental Threat Assessment project was to identify, prioritize and locate specific, imminent threats to the Stewardship Areas so that resources and efforts can be most effectively directed to those places most threatened.
