Watershed Action Alliance of waa-logoSoutheastern Massachusetts

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


Restoring passage for migrating fish to reach the small streams and the dozens of lakes and ponds where they spawn is a priority for the Taunton River Watershed Alliance. The Mill River Habitat Restoration Project, which is attempting to restore access to 37 miles of herring, eel and freshwater fish habitat, is looking at options for creating passage blocked by four dams, including the infamous Whittenton Dam that nearly collapsed in 2005 and resulted in the evacuation of Taunton.

Of particular concern: the Whittenton and three dams on the Mill River.
