  Every day residents and businesses in the Blackstone River Watershed make decisions that have an impact on the quality of the water.               

  • Reduce lawn chemical use

  • Maintain septic systems

  • Control Erosion

  • Redirect roof runoff to the lawn, not your driveway

  • Educate your neighbor!!

  • Become active in your local watershed organization


With a little effort, everyone can take steps to make the river fishable/swimmable


Local colleges are helping to promote watershed stewardship and educational opportunities by involving school children in local monitoring efforts.
