About Us

Since 1947, the not-for-profit New England Interstate Water Pollution Control Commission has supported and coordinated the work of its seven member states for clean water: Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island, and Vermont.

We work for clean water in every sphere. We coordinate policy and fund scientific research and public education. We even train and support individual wastewater and drinking-water plant operators.

The 35-member Commission (5 gubernatorial appointees from each state) sets the goals and priorities implemented by the Executive Director and the staff.

Further coordination of the work comes from the directors of our three programmatic divisions: Water Quality, Wastewater and Onsite Systems, and Water Resource Protection.

NEIWPCC’s headquarters are in Lowell, Mass. We also employ staff elsewhere to support programs and projects in our member states.
