• Working to ensure healthy rivers for people & wildlife across the Commonwealth

OUR VISION

  • Clean water for future generations

    We must ensure enough clean water to meet the future needs of wildlife, people, and a growing economy.

  • Clean rivers that support a growing economy

    The rivers, streams and wetlands of Massachusetts must provide ecological services critical to our health, safety and economy.

  • Healthy rivers for healthy communities

    Every river in Massachusetts should be an asset to the communities through which it flows.

HOW WE’RE MAKING IT HAPPEN

  • Protecting Stream Flow

    To keep water in rivers, the Massachusetts Rivers Alliance is advocating for better water allocation regulations through the Sustainable Water Management Initiative.

  • Restoring Water Quality

    More than half of the state’s rivers and streams fail to meet water quality standards due to stormwater pollution. The Alliance is working with our members and partner organizations to restore water quality through better permitting and enforcement of stormwater regulations.

  • Investment in the Environment

    The Alliance works for state investment in greener water infrastructure and other programs that improve and restore rivers.

  • Improving Wildlife Habitat

    Undersized culverts and poorly designed road crossings prevent wildlife passage and can fail catastrophically in a major storm. The Alliance is working with 15 partner organizations to offer municipalities a series of popular, full day workshops across the state on improving road stream crossings for wildlife and public safety.

  • Diverse Partnerships

    The Massachusetts Rivers Alliance works with our members, other environmental groups, and partners in government, industry, and academia to achieve our goals.
