Projects

Our staff work individually, together, and with outside partners on projects in the watershed. Project partners have included town departments, state agencies, federal agencies, teachers, and more.

Our projects include:

  • strengthening policy to protect the natural resources of the watershed,
  • commenting on development proposals to permit better water recharge for our river and underground water supplies,
  • running the Neponset Stormwater Partnership to help towns improve stormwater management,
  • boosting towns’ water-efficiency through school programs,
  • eliminating pollution sources through targeted monitoring,
  • offering rebates for water-efficient appliances,
  • removing dams and restoring natural flows,
  • managing a water-quality monitoring program (CWMN),
  • planning for the construction of stormwater treatment structures,
  • guiding abutters’ yard maintenance around a pond,
  • releasing biocontrol insects into wetlands to control exotic, invasive plants,
  • and getting the word out about what the Neponset Watershed Association does.
