The Mattapoisett River Valley is home to one of southeastern Massachusetts' most important drinking water resources. Five towns (Mattapoisett, Fairhaven, Marion, Acushnet, and Rochester) are working together with Buzzards Bay Coalition (BBC) to protect important land that will secure the quality, quantity, and long-term sustainability of the public drinking water supply.
The Buzzards Bay Coalition is pleased to announce that it is accepting proposals from organizations – including community and neighborhood groups – and individuals for initiatives focused on addressing climate change and other environmental improvement projects. A total of $25,000 will be awarded among multiple recipients.
While most of the Buzzards Bay community is scraping ice off of their cars, Director of Monitoring Programs Tony Williams is busy restocking Baywatchers Dissolved Oxygen testing kits for the upcoming 32nd summer season of water testing.
