    Working Together to Clean Up the River

    The Town of Westport recently received the results of a multi-year study done as part of the Massachusetts Estuaries Project (MEP). This project was developed to help guide towns in their assessment and management of their coastal rivers and bays, which is required by the federal Clean Water Act. The MEP informs towns about how much nitrogen there is in their bays and rivers, what a healthy level of nitrogen is, and options for cleaning up the bays and rivers.  For more information click here.

    Mission Statement

    The goals of the Westport River Watershed Alliance are to:

    • promote the environmental integrity of the watershed and its coastal environs.
    • to advocate the wise use and preservation of natural resources in the watershed for the aesthetic, recreational, and economic benefit of the citizens of the area.
    • to educate the general public about the interrelationship of our waters, soils, plants, animals, and people.
