The goal of the Herring River Restoration Project is to restore a healthy, functioning salt marsh by replacing the Chequessett Neck Road dike with an open bridge. This will let more salt water into the River from Wellfleet Harbor. The amount of water exchanged will be increased slowly over several years so that the River can be monitored. To select the best way to start to reintroduce salt water, various objectives are being evaluated. These include scientific topics like water quality and habitat changes, along with more public based topics, like recreation and the visual appearance of the River. Now's your chance to shape how the restoration proceeds - share your thoughts in this online survey.
