Current Projects

At any given time, a number of land management and research projects are ongoing at different locations around the Scituate Reservoir watershed property. Guided by the long-range watershed and forest management plans, these activities are planned and supervised by Providence Water staff. Specialized on-the-ground work such as logging and invasive plant control is performed by professional contractors. Providence Water sometimes works with external agencies and organizations in designing and executing these projects.
