Cold Water Fishery Protection

The BRC has received $25,000 from the Massachusetts Environmental Trust grant program to bolster our three project priority areas: 1) support of Year 15 of our award-winning Blackstone River Coalition watershed-wide volunteer water quality monitoring program; 2) focus on MA cold water fishery streams in the Blackstone River watershed where we have long-running monitoring sites; 3) conduct an education and outreach program in the cold-water fishery sub-watershed communities, including the four cwfs in urban Worcester (Tatnuck Brook, Ararat Brook, Coal Mine Brook and Poor Farm Brook), and the 9 cwfs in the mill towns of Grafton, Upton, Sutton, Northbridge, Douglas, Uxbridge (Cold Spring Brook, Centerville Brook, Cook Allen Brook, Miscoe Brook, Warren Brook, Meadow Brook, Emerson Brook, Bacon Brook, and the West River).
