Championing Water Resources

Through diverse partnerships, the Massachusetts Rivers Alliance promotes investment in water and water infrastructure.

Our work in this area focuses on the following objectives:

  • Create new financing mechanisms to support the protection of water resources and water supplies and to assist municipalities in updating inadequate water infrastructure.
  • Keep all water supplies protected for the benefit of everyone.
  • Adequately fund state environmental agencies that manage water and ensure compliance with laws protecting rivers, wetlands and aquifers.
  • Create incentives that allow water suppliers to fund their operations while conserving water.
  • Develop financial incentives to promote stormwater and wastewater recharge.
  • Prioritize State Revolving Fund (SRF) projects according to their environmental benefits and promote green infrastructure.
