The Admiral’s Watch Seeks Help in Preserving Clean Water in Barnstable

HYANNIS – The Admiral’s Watch is a citizen’s corps of conservation stewards dedicated to providing sustaining funds for the Barnstable Clean Water Coalition in its mission to restore and preserve clean water throughout the Town of Barnstable.

The group advocates for clean water for drinking and recreational uses including swimming, fishing, and boating and they’re looking for help.

The request is based on two decades of sound science in understanding the nitrogen crisis that imperils our treasured 12,458-acre watershed, including the 1,251-acre estuary that encompasses West, North and Cotuit Bays.

This study revealed that each 1% decline in water quality in our bays leads to a .61% decline in property values. Think about it: that’s an incredibly scary impact threshold that we as a community have crossed and must now address in this generation.

The Admiral’s Watch is looking to solve the nitrogen crisis by deploying innovative Non-Traditional Technologies, as well as time-honored methods to mitigate nitrogen and other harmful pathogens and pollutants.
