Review for IPSWICH RIVER WATERSHED ASSOCIATION INC, Ipswich, MA, USA
I have lived on the Ipswich River for 37 years and seen what it means to the communities on its banks. Not only is it the water supply and a recreational resource, but a way for us to connect to our communities’ past and their economic legacy. In recent years, the river became highly stressed, even running dry in mid-summer. The Ipswich River Watershed Association has advocated tirelessly for the health of the river. Communities upstream have found other water sources, conservation measures are in place, and I’ve seen the results in the quality and quantity of the water flowing past. Much remains to be done; the organization is now working to remove obsolete dams and bring back the migratory fish that once abounded in these waters. I can’t wait.
