- Water Operators' Partnerships (WOPs)
- Workshops and Seminars
The towns of Fairhaven, Mattapoisett, Marion and Rochester have worked together for the past 20 years on water supply development and water resources protection for the Mattapoisett River Valley. In response to declining water quality and loss of source capacity, the towns formed in 2003 a study committee to review current and future water supply capacity, demands, water quality, and treatment alternatives. The committee recommended the formation of a regional water district to construct and operate an iron and manganese removal treatment facility.
