NepRWA's water quality program allows us to identify and fix problems in the waterways of the Neponset River Watershed.
Lack of rainfall leads to reduced stormwater pollution and low water levels.
Overall, it's a mixed outlook for the Neponset River, with outstanding dissolved oxygen, mediocre total phosphorus, and worsening E. coli levels.

In 2012, US EPA inspectors found oil leaking into the Neponset River from the Saint Gobain-owned CertainTeed roofing plant (formerly Bird and Son) in Norwood.
Impacts of the drought include unusually high bacteria levels and dangerously low dissolved oxygen levels.
The majority of our CWMN volunteers managed to get samples for August, despite drought-induced low water levels throughout the Watershed.
This month, bacteria levels were higher than usual, despite the extremely dry weather and low water levels.
Unfortunately, many of the chemicals that were stored in the building were washed directly into the brook, and ultimately, the Neponset River.
The Baker Administration is pushing for the Mass Department of Environmental Protection to issue water pollution discharge permits, rather than using the US Environmental Protection Agency, which typically issues them.
