Feb. 6 — Annual Neponset River Water Quality Presentation

Join us to learn about the health of the Neponset River, streams, and ponds!

NepRWA scientists have been collecting data since 1995 through the Community Water Monitoring Network (“CWMN”) in order to monitor the health of the Neponset Watershed’s small rivers, streams, ponds, and the Neponset River. This helps to identify, address, and get funding to fix water quality problems as they are detected.


Join us at our Annual Water Quality Presentation!

Mon., Feb. 6 from 6:30 pm-8 pm
Canton Public Library Community Room, 786 Washington St, Canton

Join NepRWA River Restoration Director, Sean McCanty, and Environmental Science Fellow, Len Yeomans, as they present the water quality data and trends of the Neponset River, streams, and ponds. In addition, hear from Robert Smith the External Monitoring and Data Coordinator from the MassDEP Watershed Planning Program, who will speak about the role of watershed organizations in protecting local waterways.

This is a free public event and light refreshments will be served. Masking is optional but encouraged. There will be a remote hybrid version of the meeting available and preregistration is necessary.

Become a CWMN Volunteer!

Without question, the success of the CWMN Program is due to the many volunteers who collect water samples from all of the various sites that we track, and we are thankful for their time and effort.

If you are interested in helping to protect your local waterways and have a few hours a month to spare, we could use your help with water sampling!

Sampling occurs once a month, on the second Thursday, from May through October, and training is provided.

We always need backup or fill-in volunteers to sample on days when our regular volunteers aren’t able to.

If you or anyone you know might be interested in becoming a CWMN volunteer, please email Sean McCanty at mccanty@neponset.org
