A big part of DRWA’s role in the watershed is that of providing information to people who care about the river and its basin. To do this, we seek funding for and enact rigorous scientific research to document the status of various ecosystems within the watershed. This research enables us to knowledgeably advocate for the river when negotiating with various stakeholders. Read more about specific endeavors via the links below.
Erosion and Geomorphology – Geomorphology is the study of how the land’s surface changes. It is a big part of river science since rivers are one of the main agents affecting the shape of the earth’s surface. DRWA is actively interested in managing erosion and flooding along the Deerfield River and its tributaries.
