Taunton River Watershed: Get Invovled

Community Feedback

What are your concerns about water quality and the impacts of climate change around the Canoe River? A community questionnaire is available from the Southern Regional Planning and Economic Development District (SRPEDD) to help identify areas that frequently flood during storms, lack trees or greenspace, or has too much pavement or impervious surfaces. Knowing these places and the public’s concerns about these areas will help prioritize projects for Nature Based Solutions, strategies that use natural features like native plants to improve conditions.

The Canoe River Aquifer is an underground source of drinking water, the only viable source for over half the people in Easton, Foxborough, Mansfield, Norton, and Sharon. SRPEDD is a project partner working with these communities to identify and champion up to ten Nature Based Solution projects in the Canoe River Aquifer area to protect this critical drinking water source and prepare the region for climate change. Public input is important in selecting these projects, and SRPEDD is reaching out to residents to understand their concerns around these issues.

We will be hosting a series of events starting in the fall of 2021 to hear from people like YOU. What do you value most about your community? What are your biggest concerns about your community? How can we make sure that the selected Nature Based Solutions meet your community needs AND the needs of the environment?
