Another Win for Shoestring Bay

Following its successful Supreme Court challenge to the city of Maui, the Conservation Law Foundation has put Barnstable, Mashpee, and the Mass. DEP on notice that it intends to file a lawsuit to stop septic systems from pumping nitrogen and phosphorous pollution into local waterways.

Save Our Shoestring is proud to have played a small role in galvanizing action around the serious problems with Title 5 septic regulations and the disaster caused by septic system pollution in Cape Cod’s waterways.
