When you stop to appreciate the view, remember that all of these ponds are somehow linked to Buzzards Bay: whether through streams, via groundwater, or simply as part of the web of life in our region.
Because they aren’t lined at the bottom, these lagoons leak as much as 50,000 gallons of contaminated wastewater every day. The town must fix these leaking sewage lagoons and comply with state law.
Wickets Island, part of the developing Onset Bay Center, will be a place where people of all ages can swim, fish, paddle, dig for quahogs, walk, and picnic with their friends and family.
It’s your Bay, so get outside and enjoy it! Whether on land or on the water, find an outdoor activity and discover Buzzards Bay today.
The Coalition and the town of Wareham have received a $350,000 grant from the Seaport Economic Council to restore the historic Onset Bathhouse to serve as the headquarters for the Coalition’s developing Onset Bay Center.
We work to protect clean water on the Bay and on the land:
