-To study the quality and health of Cape Cod Bay through applied science and research;
-To protect and when possible restore the Bay’s estuaries and marshes, barrier beaches, creeks, rivers and harbors from human and natural threats;
-To inform the public and decision makers about the natural resources of the Bay and threats to their long-term protection;
-To advise local, state and federal resource managers about this unique marine environment;
-To preserve Cape Cod Bay as a State Ocean Sanctuary, as defined by Chapter 132 of the General Laws of Massachusetts.

The Water Quality Monitoring program is supported by State and County organizations and private foundations.
