PIE-Rivers partners are conservation and community leaders representing a wide range organizations, state and federal governmental agencies, and municipalities. We share the common goal to promote healthy rivers and ecosystems in the coastal rivers of northeastern Massachusetts. PIE-Rivers was formed to increase communication, coordination and collaboration between those involved in restoration, preservation and management of the watersheds.

 

The partnership is open to representatives of municipalities, state and federal agencies, academic institutions, non-profits and interested citizens.
PIE-Rivers work includes:

Priority Actions: Our partners have identified near- and longer-term recommended actions to to protect and restore the region’s water-related resources.

Projects: PIE-Rivers tracks projects in the region that relate to priority actions

Measuring Progress: Sustainably healthy watersheds are a long-term goal. We track a range of biological, physical and social measures to see how our efforts are doing and where they can be improved.

Municipal Services: A range of services to provide cost savings and support municipal efforts to (1) comply with water-related regulatory requirements and (2) scope, fund and implement on the ground projects.

The partnership is managed by the Ipswich River Watershed Association.
