Housatonic Valley Association

Clean Water For Life!

The Housatonic Valley Association is uniquely dedicated to protecting the entire Housatonic River Watershed. The watershed includes about 2,000 square miles of land stretching from western Massachusetts through western Connecticut and eastern New York to Long Island Sound. HVA monitors water quality throughout the watershed, conducts educational programs, works to link preserved space with the Housatonic River Greenway of hiking and biking trails and uses computer mapping to help towns measure the impact and benefits of land use and development. HVA’s offices are in Cornwall Bridge, Connecticut; South Lee, Massachusetts; and Wassaic, New York.

Our educational programs reach youngsters throughout the watershed such as these students collecting river creatures to determine water quality ...

And our programs also protect wildlife habitat ...
