Offshoots, Inc. worked with the Cape Cod Commission to develop a multi-scaled green infrastructure strategy as part of the 208 Water Quality Plan. The green infrastructure proposed helps mitigate nitrogen pollution generated from septic systems while also addressing regional climate resiliency goals. Regional, municipal, neighborhood and site-scaled strategies were researched and aggregated to provide a menu of Best Management Practices (BMPs) for nitrogen removal on Cape Cod.
