Why does stream continuity matter?
Animals that live in or along rivers and streams need to be able to move within and along these streams in order to survive (and often, reproduce). Dams and roads serve as often insurmountable barriers to wildlife movement, with severe impacts on the health and viability of our wildlife populations.

Mass Rivers organized a series of six workshops for municipalities across the state, together with members of the River Continuity Partnership in 2013. The presentations are available in our online document library.
Massachusetts is part of a larger North Atlantic Aquatic Continuity Collaborative working together on these issues.
