Major Victory for Our Rivers!

Watershed groups successfully press U.S. EPA to protect water quality!
Following a lawsuit by Massachusetts Rivers Alliance, with OARS and eight other river groups across the state as co-plaintiffs, the EPA’s stormwater permit for Massachusetts went into effect on July 1!

This is a victory for clean water that will benefit us all. Municipalities will be required to take additional steps to protect rivers, lakes, streams and ponds from polluted stormwater runoff. Contaminated stormwater is a leading source of water pollution in the state.
