Statewide Alternative Restoration Plan Status

DEP works statewide to encourage local stakeholders to develop Alternative Restoration Plans (4b or 4e plans) at the earliest practical time. Early implementation of restoration activities is more cost effective and may allow DEP to forgo certain regulatory steps - most notably, the development of total maximum loads (TMDLs) and basin management action plans (BMAPs) - thereby focusing limited local and state resources directly on measures that will improve water quality.

The information in the application below tracks alternative restoration efforts across the state. Users can easily explore specific plan types, parameters, waterbodies or geographic areas. All plan data—or selected and filtered subsets of plan data—are available for download from within the application.
