Our Unique Landscape
Cape Cod’s landscape is unique—a fragile sandbar jutting far out to sea, surrounded by salt water and with an abundance of ponds, estuaries and bays but no major rivers or reservoirs. Our water is drawn from one source—from the ground, from the single aquifer that we all share. Each town on the Cape—even Provincetown, which has no potable water of its own and get its water from Truro—pumps its water from the ground. So no town is immune to potential water contamination.
Let’s do all we can to protect Cape Cod’s drinking water!
If you would like to support POCCA, you may donate HERE:
to help us with the costs of paying for signs and other expenses, including maintaining this website and all paper work costs: fliers, brochures, rack cards, business cards, posters, paper & ink. All labor on behalf of POCCA is volunteer, we are only seeking to cover out-of-pocket expenses.
With your help, we will be able to preserve and protect
this beautiful place that we all love, Cape Cod.
