In your mind’s eye, you can almost imagine what the old Acushnet Saw Mill site must have been like in the mid 19th century. Some 150 years later, however, it’s some kind of miracle what the Buzzards Bay Coalition has accomplished at the old mill.
A Mattapoisett salt marsh littered with pieces of polystyrene foam will be cleaned up by the marina that caused the pollution, according to a recent agreement between the marina owner and the Massachusetts Dept. of Environmental Protection.
Today, the Coalition welcomed representatives from the federal government, state government, and the towns of Fairhaven and Mattapoisett to celebrate a partnership that has protected more than 400 acres of beaches, salt marshes, forests, fields, and coastal farmland.
