Download State of the Sudbury River from the Saxonville Dam upstream 1 mile to the Wickford St. Bridge (PDF) - a special report commissioned by The Town of Framingham in 2015. The report includes recommendations for restoring this tremendous resource to a more natural state.
This section of the river's surface is 93% covered with non-native invasive species negatively affecting life on the river for all native plant and animal species, and recreational use.
