New England Interstate Water Pollution Control Commission

Since 1947, the New England Interstate Water Pollution Control Commission has been a leader in the fight for clean water. As a not-for-profit interstate agency, NEIWPCC serves and assists its member states—Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island, and Vermont—in many ways: by coordinating activities and forums that encourage cooperation among the states, educating the public about key water quality issues, supporting research projects, training environmental professionals, and providing overall leadership in water management and protection. NEIWPCC's initial emphasis was on surface water protection, but that role has grown over the years to include such matters as wetlands restoration, nonpoint source pollution, water allocation, and underground storage tanks.
