Pamet River Restoration in Truro Designated Priority Project by State

TRURO –The state has announced 11 new river and wetland restoration projects, including one in Truro, that will be designated Priority Projects through the Department of Fish and Game’s (DFG) Division of Ecological Restoration (DER).

Priority Projects, which are eligible to receive grants, project management and contracted technical services funded by DER, deliver significant ecological and community benefits to the Commonwealth.

The Pamet River restoration will connect tidal habitat along the river and its tributaries to improve salt marsh condition and strengthen coastal resiliency.

“Our administration remains committed to working with our federal, municipal, and private partners to restore rivers, wetlands, and the valuable natural resources in systems throughout the Commonwealth,” said Governor Charlie Baker.

Once completed, the projects will provide significant social, environmental and economic benefits to the Commonwealth and local communities.

More than 60 active ecological restoration projects throughout the state are currently designated as Priority Projects.
