Sustainable Braintree advocates for water conservation in our daily lives and the protection of water sources for people and planet alike.
During drought periods Braintree, Holbrook and Randolph reservoir’s capacity can become diminished. Our water supply also draws water from the Farm River, which takes water away from river herring run. In order to continue to have water for drinking, food preparation, natural fish runs and sanitation, we all need to conserve water as much as possible, both now and into the future.
Water protection requires more that conservation in buildings. We support the effort of Braintree's Stormwater Management Division in educating town residents and businesses on the issues surrounding stormwater pollution.
We forget that the water cycle and the life cycle are one
