PREP Workplan 

Year 9 Work Plan

Each year the Piscataqua Region Estuaries Partnership develops a comprehensive workplan as part of its agreement with the U.S. EPA.  The workplan includes accomplishments achieved since the last workplan and lists goals and project activities for the upcoming year.  Project Teams contribute to workplan development, and the Management Committee reviews and approves the workplan.
