Great Swamp Watershed Association (GSWA) has been involved in monitoring Watershed streams since 1999. In an effort to better communicate the results of these monitoring programs and answer the common question, “How’s the water?”, GSWA developed the Great Swamp Watershed Report Card. The Report Card grades Watershed streams, and notes where issues are present, potential reasons why, and recommendations to improve our local water resources.
