The Little River & The Common Pasture – As Woven into Newburyport as the Bricks!

Kathleen Downey has done a very intensive, detailed explanation as to why the Little River and the Common Pasture are so important to Newburyport and so much a part of our community.

Because it all has to do with watersheds.

Most times, average citizens get this glazed look when you start to talk about this subject and yet – in very acute situations such as having enough water during a drought, or in emergency situations when flooding occurs; it is on everyone’s lips.     And then of course, when you have a messy case of sewage in nearby Merrimack River, everyone sits up and pays attention!      And yes, it impacts everyone from citizens to farmers and from businessmen to homeowners.

I invite you to read this online article and fully understand why so much CPA money is going toward protecting our watershed.
