Welcome to the

Blackstone River Watershed Association

The Blackstone River Watershed Association (BRWA) was established in 1976 and has since played an instrumental role in cleaning up what was described as an “industrial river” in the 19th and 20th centuries. Although still threatened by industrial and increasingly residential pollution sources, the health of the Blackstone's river system continues to improve.

The BRWA’s mission is to engage, educate and advocate for improved water quality in the Blackstone River watershed.

Upcoming Events

Annual Mtg & MassWildlife Coldwater Fisheries Presentation: Sunday, November 4; 3 to 6pm

We are all set to celebrate our 40th year as a non-profit! Please register here!

We will have a very brief 10-minute meeting to vote on a new slate of officers followed by a presentation on Coldwater Fisheries Resources by Adam Kautza of Massachusetts Division of Fisheries & Wildlife.

We will then step across the courtyard to Purgatory Beer Company to toast our 40 years as a non-profit organization. Food and drink will be available for purchase but the first drink will be on us. Wine and non-alcoholic beverages will also be available.
