Working with a variety of stakeholders, PRWA will protect and restore the Pequabuck River and its tributaries to improve water quality for human health through a diverse and stable watershed eco-system.
The Pequabuck River Watershed Association (PRWA) works in Bristol, Burlington, Farmington, Harwinton, Plainville, and Plymouth to promote a healthy watershed and protect our waterways through education, advocacy, outreach, and natural improvement programs. PRWA incorporated in 1995 and was granted 501(c)3 status in 1997. Annually, Pequabuck River Watershed Association, participates in more than a dozen community outreach events designed to raise awareness of our river, educate the public on point and non-point source pollution, educate students on the stream morphology and the water cycle, and encourage composting. Working with community stakeholders, Pequabuck River Watershed improves the environment by managing local forested wetlands and installing bioinfiltration improvements such as rain gardens. We also advocate on behalf of healthy water initiatives such as banning fracking waste, updating the bottle bill, and adoption of a statewide water plan.
