Buzzards Bay Coalition Looking for Support

BOURNE: “Save Buzzards Bay” is asking for the public’s help as the Massachusetts State Legislature is considering two issues that would move forward efforts to protect clean water in the area.

The first item on the agenda is a $125,000 offer to support the Bay Watchers Program which releases nitrogen pollution cleanup plans for the Westport Rivers and Falmouth waterways. These plans are used to set action courses to reduce pollution.

The second is a low interest loan program for nitrogen-reducing septic system upgrades. Save Buzzards Bay is asking for support on House Bill 4042 which would provide loans to residents to upgrade their septic systems with nitrogen reducing technology.
