The Baker River Watershed Association was first formed in the late 1980's with the primary goals of education and water quality testing. In 1998, the Association reorganized and received 501(c)(3) nonprofit status. Since that time, the BRWA has expanded its focus to include watershed planning, river cleanups, education of property owners along the river, and outreach to the communities within the watershed.

In 2002, the BRWA was awarded a grant from the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (NHDES) Nonpoint Source Control Program to develop a watershed management plan. This plan was completed in June 2003 and serves as a primary document in determining the work of the BRWA. In 2005, the BRWA received another grant from the NHDES Small Outreach and Education Grant Program for Nonpoint Source Pollution for outreach and education through the development of this web site.

The BRWA continues to focus its efforts on water quality testing, river cleanups, implementing the recommendations in the Baker River Watershed Management Plan, and outreach and education about the watershed.
