Pembroke Watershed Association - P.O. Box 368, Pembroke MA 02359

The PWA is pleased to announce that Josh Cutler, State Representative for Pembroke, Hanson, and Duxbury, was able to secure state funding in the amount of $50,000 for the Town of Pembroke to be used for pond cleanup and maintenance.  More resources are needed however, but these additional funds will help fill the gap to allow residents to better enjoy the many recreational and ecological benefits of Pembroke's ponds.

What is a Watershed?
 
A watershed consists of an area of land where run-off from higher elevations is channeled into a specific body of water such as a pond, lake, river, or ocean.  A watershed is a way to divide up landscapes, particularly when considering water issues.
 
Massachusetts has 27 major watersheds.  The Southeastern section of the Commonwealth consists of 5 major watershed areas, and the South Coastal Watershed is one of them.
 
Pembroke is one of 14 towns within the South Coastal Watershed.  The Pembroke Watershed Association is Pembroke’s own watershed.
 
Watershed groups, because of some issues specific to their particular locations, vary some in their goals.  However, the common thread they all share is clean water and addressing whatever needs to be done to correct and preserve it in their individual areas.  This means attracting members who will volunteer time, educate the public, work toward their goals, and seek funding to attain a satisfactory result.
