  • Drought 2016: Take Action for the River. Last year’s unprecedented drought with its devastating impacts on the river was perhaps the best opportunity we’ve had to finally address the river’s low flow problem.

  • Save Water, Save Money. The #1 threat to the Ipswich River is overuse — too many people taking water out, not enough of them putting it back.
