After years of robust citizen involvement and study by federal, state, county and local levels of government, the Peconic Estuary Program adopted a blueprint to restore and protect the waters of the Peconic Bays in 2001 - the PEP's Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan (CCMP). The CCMP promotes a holistic approach to improving and maintaining the estuary and its watershed. Priority management topics include Brown Tide, nutrients, habitat and living resources, pathogens, toxic pollutants, and critical lands protection. These six priority topics, together with the need for public education and outreach, form the basis for the CCMP action plans.

Each of the 85 actions in the CCMP is broken down into one or more discrete steps. The full CCMP document provides detailed information on who is responsible for carrying out the steps, the time frame, and the cost of completing the step.
