Ipswich River Watershed Association

Located on a 23 acre riverside property in Ipswich, Massachusetts, the Ipswich River Watershed Association is a small organization with a history of big accomplishments. Incorporated in 1977, we work to improve conditions on the Ipswich River through community engagement, environmental monitoring, habitat restoration and advocacy for water resources policy improvements. Our organization has been a statewide leader in efforts to resolve chronic low-flow issues by incorporating sound science in Massachusetts’ water allocation process. We coordinate a long-standing citizen science monitoring program and are a key partner in river restoration projects including the watershed’s first dam removal in 2012.
