Streamflow Restoration

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 has worked to restore natural streamflow (the amount of water that flows through streams and rivers) in Massachusetts by working with partners to collect streamflow data, inform and support policy and actions that restore and maintain healthy streamflows, and by managing restoration projects aimed at restoring natural flow.
