Quabbin Reservoir Public Access Management Plan Update

The Department of Conservation and Recreation, Division of Water Supply Protection (DCR/DWSP) manages the Quabbin Reservoir and significant public waters, facilities, and tracts of land in the towns surrounding the reservoir (herein, Quabbin Reservoir Watershed System). The Quabbin Reservoir is an unfiltered, public water supply that provides high quality drinking water to approximately 2.5 million people in 51 Massachusetts communities, including several in western Massachusetts.

The Quabbin Reservoir Watershed System operates under federal and state water quality regulations that require proper management and adequate control of public access and recreation. Public input is an important source of information the DCR/DWSP uses in evaluating its access policies and plans. Your input is important to help guide the 2016 update of the Public Access Management Plan. Please take a few minutes to complete the following survey questions.
