Watershed Protection Plan Update

Topics: Water/Wastewater,

The report is an updated version of the DCR's Watershed Protection Plan, which was instituted in order to protect the source water supply for 2.5 million people in Massachusetts. The plan covers the watersheds of the Quabbin Reservoir, the Ware River, the Wachusett Reservoir, and the Sudbury Reservoir System. The report details different threats and problem areas for the source water supplies, such as invasive wildlife, construction, and wastewater contamination, and describes control programs for each watershed. The report concludes with a short section on implementation strategies.
