Water Resources


Water Since its creation, the Martha's Vineyard Commission has actively worked to protect the Island's water resources. This has been done in close relation with towns and a number of local agencies. The Water Resources department of the Commission is involved with monitoring ponds of the island, both fresh and salt, as well as our watersheds, groundwater, stormwater, and wastewater. Below you'll find links to the different forms of water we protect and more information about them.

  • Island Ponds- Coastal and Freshwater:  Includes all of our salt and freshwater ponds on the Vineyard and information about each one.
  • Watersheds: What they are, how they work on the island and what contributes to them including wastewater and stormwater.
  • Groundwater and Drinking Water:  Describes the Vineyard's aquifers and the public and private water supplies on the Vineyard.
  • The Water Alliance: A group of individuals interested and concerned for the future of our water on the island and learning more about it!
  • What we do in Water Resources: Learn more about who we are and who we collaborate with, what we do, and how you can help!
