THE BASS RIVER WATERSHED

 

 Major   components   of   the   Bass   River   Embayment   System   assessed   by   the    Massachusetts Estuaries Project.  Tidal waters enter the main channel of the Bass River system through a single inlet from Nantucket Sound. Fresh water enters from the   watershed primarily through direct groundwater discharge to the estuary and through two small surface water discharges (Fresh Pond Brook and Hamblin Brook into Mill Pond).
