Meet the Board
The Parker River Clean Water Association Board represents many of the towns that are part of the Parker River Watershed. Some have experience from their work on Conservation Commissions, Land Conservation Organizations, while others come from water / sewer boards. We have engineeers, scientists, conservation advocates and even legislators from all different walks of life. All have a deep commitment to work toward and maintain a healthy Parker River Watershed.
