The Neponset River Watershed is:
- A 120-square mile area that drains into the Neponset River
- Home to 330,000+ people
- A drinking water source for 120,000 people
- A destination for hikers, cyclists, fishing enthusiasts, and paddlers. It offers an invaluable habitat for our native fish and wildlife.
The Watershed includes parts of 14 cities and towns: Boston (Hyde Park, Mattapan, and Dorchester), Canton, Dedham, Dover, Foxborough, Medfield, Milton, Norwood, Quincy, Randolph, Sharon, Stoughton, Walpole, Westwood.
Our goal is a clean, healthy, accessible River and Watershed, from the smallest headwater stream to the wide-open brackish water of the estuary.
