Who we serve

BCMCP serves the 20 cities and towns within Bristol County, Massachusetts.

We reduce mosquito populations through surveillance, water management, biological and chemical controls. All of these methods are performed in an environmentally sensitive manner to minimize potential effects on people, wildlife and the environment.

Commissioners live or work in the county and all decisions are made in a fiscally responsible manner. The Project advocates public outreach and education through cooperative efforts with local officials, school departments and the news media.

BCMCP Commissioners include: Chairman Robert F. Davis, Joseph Barile, Gregory D. Dorrance, Christine A. Fagan, Aaron G. Caswell
