Nine Mile Run Watershed Association restores and protects its watershed ecosystem, while working regionally to support and implement resilient solutions for a healthy urban environment.
Nine Mile Run Watershed Association is a recognized national model of environmental stewardship, urban renewal, public/private collaboration, and inter-municipal cooperation.
people are inextricably linked with the natural environment. The way we treat our lawns and gardens, what we buy, what we throw away, the cars we drive– all of these have a profound effect on the environment around us. Even if you never take a walk along Nine Mile Run, what you do in your home and your neighborhood affects the health of our stream and our watershed.
is to give citizens and elected officials the information and tools they need to make positive changes in the Watershed communities. We support residents’ efforts to implement innovative solutions to stormwater problems, provide citizen training for urban ecological stewardship, and act as an information clearinghouse about key watershed issues.
