Parker-Ipswich-Essex Rivers Restoration Partnership

Description

Expand water quality assessments to unmonitored areas (DEP Unassessed areas) and identify areas where water quality threatens important aquatic ecosystems using existing information and new research as necessary. Consider ecological and public health effects of trace chemicals such as pharmaceuticals that end up in surface and groundwater systems. Develop a list and proposed timeline to address high priority “Hot Spots” for degraded water quality in both the freshwater and estuarine zone.
