FRWA is a citizen-based, non-profit 501(c)3 organization.  It was founded by concerned local residents in 1953 to address the critical water quality problems of that era.

Today, FRWA still leads in addressing Farmington River issues such as water quality, water allocation, habitat restoration, recreation, open space, and wetland and floodplain protection.

We work with federal, state and local governments, business and industry, and with people in the watershed’s 33 communities to protect the river and its surrounding landscape.

With the help of members, supporters and partners, we look after the river that connects us all, with a wide range of Research, Education, and Advocacy programs.

We invite you to join us in this important effort!
