About Us

The Jones River Watershed Association is a non-profit, member-based organization established to protect, enhance, and restore the natural resources of the watershed though advocacy, protection of sensitive riparian lands, habitat restoration, and infrastructure improvements.

We began our work in 1985 in response to the terrible impacts of water diversions out of the basin. Since that time, we have maintained an increasingly consistant level of effort to educate others and ourselves about this small coastal ecosystem and its relationship to the globally significant Gulf of Maine.

Our twentieth year brought real challenges and real changes. Make no mistake, the river and its ecosystem are in desperate condition. However, because of the small but essential steps taken over the years to conserve land, to study the river, and to address the politics that impact our local environment, we now have a chance to restore the vital natural resources important to all of us.

This past year our most significant accomplishments concluded in agreements with the proponents of the Taunton River Desalination Project that will provide new water to the City of Brockton, and participation in the process that will establish a comprehensive water management plan for that City that will restore continuity between the Jones River and Silver Lake.
