Watershed groups united to protect and restore clean, plentiful, and free-flowing water

Plymouth, Wareham and Bourne

In Plymouth, Wareham & Bourne: The state Riverways Program has listed the restoration of coldwater fish habitat in the Eel River as a “priority project” and the Eel River Watershed Association has joined the effort, which includes possible removal of dams and dikes. A number of statewide organizations are also working with Riverways Program to address four dams in Plymouth, Wareham and Bourne that are blocking fish passage on Red Brook; the Robbins Dam as well as the New Way Dike have already been removed. With help from the Riverways Program, Plymouth has also taken down the Billington St. Dam on Town Brook.

Of particular concern: a number of dams on the Eel and Town Rivers.
