Conservation Commission

Mission Statement

The Conservation Commission is a seven member volunteer board appointed by the Board of Selectmen and charged with the protection of Rehoboth's natural resources. The mission of the Rehoboth Conservation Commission is to implement the goals of the Massachusetts Wetlands Protection Act (CMR 10.00). The Commission serves to protect and conserve the plants, animals, and natural communities that are dependent upon the wetlands resources of the Town of Rehoboth. This is accomplished by regulating activities deemed by the Conservation Commission as likely to have a significant or cumulative effect upon the values of these resource areas, namely, but not limited to, public or private water supply protection; groundwater protection; flood control; erosion and sedimentation control; storm damage prevention; water pollution control; fisheries, shellfish, wildlife, and plant species and habitat protection; agriculture; aesthetics; and recreation and aquaculture.
