River Restoration: Streamflow

The Division of Ecological Restoration (DER) works to restore healthy streamflows.

Many Massachusetts rivers lack enough water at certain times of year to support aquatic ecosystems, fishing, recreation and adequate drinking supplies. DER works to restore natural streamflow (the amount of water that flows through streams and rivers) in Massachusetts. We do this by working with partners to collect streamflow data; to inform and support policy and actions that restore and maintain healthy streamflows; and by managing restoration projects aimed at restoring natural flow. Here, you can learn about our work and projects as well as how to submit a project to become a DER Priority Project.
