Land, Water and Climate Change
January 30 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Held at Central Square Library Branch
The Boston region’s wetlands, marshes, and streams have been largely filled in and are increasingly looked upon as prime sites for new development. But in areas like Alewife, East Cambridge, and throughout the Mystic River and Charles River watersheds, the water hasn’t gone away and flooding will only get worse in the coming years. We also share an outdated sewer and storm water system that sends precious water resources to the ocean as waste and is ill-prepared for rising sea levels.
New approaches to infrastructure and the realities of climate change can restore and enrich our environment, generate income, and save our neighborhoods and communities. Bob Zimmerman formerly of the Charles River Watershed Association and Doug Brown of the Fresh Pond Residents Alliance will lead a discussion on not just ideas but action for a better tomorrow.
