Water Quality


Mashpee Clean Waters

SPB supports the efforts of the Mashpee Clean Waters group formed recently on Facebook with the purpose:

Mashpee has significant water quality issues. It’s a complicated problem and there’s a real need for clear information. We’ll try to share as much objective information and news as we can. Join us to advance the conversation and drive action to improve the quality of the waters in Mashpee.

The group is convening a virtual conversation series about different aspects of the issue. We meet on line and you can easily join from your computer or phone. Please join us and bring all your questions about this topic.
