Mission and Vision
The Ipswich River Watershed Association (IRWA) is the voice of the Ipswich River. IRWA works to protect nature and make sure that there is enough clean water for people, fish and wildlife, today and for our children and theirs.
The Ipswich River and streams, ponds and coastal waters of our region are healthy and beautiful. Clean water flows year-round, and native fish and wildlife thrive. Natural areas help keep the river clean and provide places for families to enjoy nature. Our drinking water is clean, safe and adequate to meet our needs. The Ipswich River Watershed Association works in partnership with communities, businesses, schools, and other organizations and residents to protect the river.
