      EPA is inviting you to join us in Boston for a “Summit” focused on restoring the Mystic River Watershed.  We hope this gathering of stakeholders will help us generate ideas, develop goals and map a strategy to improve water quality in the Mystic.  Ultimately, we hope to form a committee to collaboratively carry-out restoration and clean-up projects.

      This summit will focus on the topic of water quality in the watershed.  Water quality encompasses many issues:  existing contaminated sites, sources of pollutants to the river, land use, river related development, restoration and preservation, municipal stormwater management, other stormwater problems, etc. To cover all of these issues, attendees at the summit will divide into four working break-out groups for the greater part of the day to focus on Bacteria; Industrial Contaminants; Flooding; and Changing Land Use and Its Impact to the River.  Each group will be facilitated by leaders knowledgeable about the watershed and will be guided to identify major problems, available tools, key players, and priority actions.    

      Intended audience: local decision makers including municipal leaders and urban planners, planning boards, conservation commissions, public works, water and sewer utilities, regional planning agencies, conservation districts, watershed groups and community advocates, as well as, state and federal agencies, consultants and businesses.    

      A summit brochure and R.S.V.P. information will be available in early March on our web site: http://www.epa.gov/region1/mysticriver/summit.html

      To request a hard copy brochure please email Caitlyn Hunt at hunt.caitlyn@... or call 617-918-1748.
