Business Support for the NRWA

A healthy environment has economic value, a principal that the Nashua River Watershed Association has recognized since our founding in 1969. We are pleased that those economic benefits are being recognized, including:

  • Higher property values
  • Expanded outdoor recreation opportunities
  • Flood mitigation
  • Reduction in water filtration and wastewater treatment costs
  • Preservation of community character
  • Improved quality of life that helps local businesses attract and retain employees

The NRWA helps local officials plan for growth in our rapidly developing area of north central Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire. Clean rivers, adequate water supplies, and responsible land use are good for business, good for communities, and good for the environment.

Support from the business community has been central to the NRWA’s success since our inception. We are proud that over 100 business members recognize the benefits provided by NRWA and feel strongly that the Association is worthy of their support. View a list of Current NRWA Business Supporters.

Businesses can support the NRWA in a variety of ways, through memberships, donations, sponsorships, grants, and in-kind donations. Choose the option that best fits your business and become a partner-- help promote a healthy economy and healthy environment in our watershed.
