  FINAL Restoration Project Selection Procedure - 1MB -  pdf file

The Restoration Project Selection Procedure (RPSP) provides a procedural framework for the solicitation, evaluation, and selection of compensatory restoration projects for the Massachusetts portion of the Housatonic River Natural Resource Damage Assessment (NRDA) and restoration process. Compensatory restoration projects are projects that restore, rehabilitate, replace, and/or acquire the equivalent of injured natural resources and the services provided by those resources.

NOTE:  The RPSP is not a formal solicitation for project proposals or ideas.
