Nutrient Projects
 
The river is a little too well fertilized, and most of us can take steps to help solve this problem every day.

Nutrient overload is one of the biggest threats to the Assabet River's water quality and biodiversity. Residents of the watershed can do a few little things that collectively make a big difference.

Check out our nutrient education pages to see how you might be able to help improve conditions in the Assabet or whatever watershed you live in.

Automatic Dishwasher Detergents

OAR's automatic dishwasher detergent campaign has educated thousands of watershed residents on how to make their daily chores a lot more river-friendly. Click here to go to detergents home.

OAR's nutrient education projects were funded by grants from the National Park Service and the Massachusetts Executive Office of Environmental Affairs. We would like to thank the Middlesex Conservation District for providing substantial assistance and support in the developement of the lawn care materials.
