Clean Water Paddle

Over fifty surfers turned out on a cold Sunday to show their commitment for clean water. Among those present for the event was Tom Skinner, Director of Massachusetts Coastal Zone Management. Local surfers were stoked to paddle out for the knee high waves after the press conference.


Storm Drain Stenciling

The Storm Drain Stenciling Program is an activity sponsored by the Boston Water and Sewer Commission (BWSC) in conjunction with students and community residents to identify the negative impacts on our waterways and harbor when pollutants are illegally and/or carelessly discarded on Boston streets.
