Who we are…
The Swift River Preservation Association (SRPA) is a non profit organization that was formed for the purpose of preserving the Upper Bondsville Dam and Swift River.
We are opposed to the removal of the Upper Bondsville Dam which will drain the Swift River and permanently alter over 60 acres of wetlands and eradicate a myriad of species in the diverse wetland habitat. The Swift River directly flows from the Quabbin Reservoir and the Upper Bondsville Dam lies about 2 miles south of the Quabbin Spillway.
The dam has been in existence for over 100 years and has created a lakelike impoundment used for kayaking, canoeing, tubing, fishing, swimming, boating and observing wildlife.
We are committed to preserving the Upper Bondsville Dam and Swift River thereby ensuring the existence of this unique ecosystem for generations to come.
