IPSWICH RIVER WATERSHED ASSOCIATION INC
March 9, 2011
I have been a volunteer river monitor with the Ipswich River Watershed Association for at least 15 years, as well as being connected through a local "stream team" that was started under its auspices. It has been blessed with top notch leadership and a flow of excellent people who worked well together within tight budget constraints. They have met challenge after challenge, including several moves, a landmark legal case challenging the lack of enforcement of water withdrawal restrictions by the State of Massachusetts at the same time that they have fostered ever-improving scientific studies to identify baseline data for optimum environment for Ipswich River wildlife. Despite the many pressing demands of the organization, they are always helpful when needed for individual questions or stream team support.
