Baker-Polito Grants for Watershed Restoration Projects

The Baker-Polito Administration yesterday announced state grant funds for two river restoration efforts in Chester and Halifax.

These projects will enable these water bodies to be restored to their natural state, improving ecological conditions and allowing wildlife to thrive,” said Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito.

The Department of Fish and Game’s (DFG) Division of Ecological Restoration (DER) coordinates these grants for priority river restoration projects.

The Town of Halifax is working with multiple partners in the management of Monponsett Ponds and Stump Brook to optimize water quality and quantity.

These water bodies are subject to harmful seasonal algal blooms. State funding will match an EPA grant for the Southeast New England Coastal Watershed Restoration Program.
