Water Protection Fund

The Cape Cod and Islands Water Protection Fund was established by the state legislature to help Cape Cod and Islands towns pay for wastewater infrastructure and water quality remediation projects.   The source of revenue for the fund is a 2.75% excise tax on traditional lodging and short-term rentals. 

The Assistant Town Manager gave a presentation to Falmouth's Select Board about the fund on 10/19/20.  

More information about the fund can be found on the Cape Cod and Island Water Protection Fund website.
