NepRWA’s water quality reports enable us to advocate for the cleanup of pollution.
Our water sampling begins with the Community Water Monitoring Network (CWMN), an Environmental Protection Agency-approved, volunteer-based approach to water quality monitoring that has been running at NepRWA since 1995.
CWMN volunteers sample water quality in streams and the Neponset River, from May through October, throughout the 14 communities of the Neponset Watershed. The samples provide critical scientific data that assists us in locating and cleaning up pollution around the Watershed.
NepRWA staff produces an Annual Water Quality Report for the Neponset River, as well as individual reports for select towns in the Watershed.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has been issuing water quality report cards for the Neponset River since 2019, based on the data from CWMN.
For more information about the CWMN Program and water quality results, please contact NepRWA River Restoration Director, Sean McCanty at email@example.com

How do I know if the water in my town is clean for swimming, boating, or fishing?
For the most up-to-date information on water quality in your town, check with your local board of health or town website.
While NepRWA monitors water quality in local streams and ponds, the collected data primarily captures trends over time rather than daily fluctuations.
