Cape Cod Water Collaborative Director Resigns

Selectman Chair Andrew Gottlieb.

HYANNIS – Citing a lack of support from Barnstable County Commissioners, Cape Cod Water Protection Collaborative’s executive director has decided to resign.

Andrew Gottlieb’s resignation will take effect January 3, but he will continue to be involved in the issue of water quality and wastewater management on Cape Cod, as well his current post as a member of the Board of Selectmen in Mashpee.

“It’s certainly the right of the majority of the commissioners to have a certain view and if they didn’t support my ongoing participation in the job then I thought it was appropriate that I simply move on,” Gottlieb said.

There are a handful of agencies that handle wastewater issues on the Cape, and the county board has shown interest in wanting to get all the stakeholders involved on the same page moving forward.

Since its inception in 2005, the Cape Cod Water Protection Collaborative has attempted to protect Cape Cod’s shared water resources and to provide access to cost-effective and environmentally sound wastewater infrastructure.
