About the Project

The Massachusetts Estuaries Project will provide water quality, nutrient loading, and hydrodynamic information for 89 estuaries in Southeastern Massachusetts. This information will be combined through the use of a linked watershed/estuary model that will predict the water quality changes that will result from land use management decisions.

This project is a collaborative effort by two state agencies, the Executive Office of Environmental Affairs (through the Department of Environmental Protection) and the University of Massachusetts's School of Marine Science and Technology.
