FAR Board Meeting & Speaker: Nancy Hammett, MA Rivers Alliance Staff (former Executive Director of the Mystic River Watershed Association & former member of Watertown's Conservation Commission and Stormwater Advisory Committee) will discuss what we can do at Alewife to improve Little River's D- Report Card. Hammett will share information regarding more stringent municipal storm water regulations from the US-EPA which may improve our rivers, ponds and streams etc creating more healthy water related environments for humans and non-humans alike. Storm water committees have been formed in Belmont and Watertown for monitoring and helping to promote the compliance for these more expanded regulations. MS4 is on the books, but is not fully complied with in the US. Call 617-415-1884 for more information.
