Muddy River Restoration

The Muddy River is the central waterway of the Emerald Necklace, meandering from its source at Jamaica Pond to its mouth at Charlesgate Park. Ensuring its health and flood control capabilities is no small task, but has been a worthwhile one going on three centuries.

Today’s Muddy River Restoration Project is a years-long effort led by the US Army Corps of Engineers to improve the flow of the river, stabilize its banks, control invasive species, restore habitats for native wildlife and more!
