Two Talks - STORMWATER CONTROLS and INVASIVE PLANTS - JOIN US!
Mystic River Watershed Association presents talks on stormwater
controls and invasive plants as part of our Winter Speaker Series.
Please help spread the word about these two great talks. Please let
me know if you have any questions. I hope to see you there!
Steven Roy, GeoSyntec Consultants, will present "Low Impact
Development Stormwater Controls," a
talk on stormwater controls for homeowners. Tuesday, Jan 27th, 7pm.
Keverian Room, Everett City Hall (484 Broadway). Mr. Roy will
describe how homeowners can improve and protect water quality and
reduce nonpoint source pollution through the use of LID techniques
including rain barrels, raingardens, bioretention cells, soil
amendments, no-phosphorus fertilizers for lawn care, pet waste
controls, and groundwater recharge using permeable pavers and porous
pavement. Where possible, homeowners can increase groundwater
recharge and reduce nonpoint source pollution that is associated
with stormwater runoff. Examples of current projects and designs will
be presented. Don't miss it!
Steven Roy is a water resources planner and scientist with GeoSyntec
Consultants, Inc., Boxborough, MA. He has over 23 years of
professional experience in the field of environmental program
management specializing in water resources assessment, stormwater
management, and environmental impact assessment.
On Tuesday, February 3rd, we will feature Frances Clark, Carex
Associates, with a presentation on the problem of invasive plant
species in our watershed. Ms. Clark will present "Exotic Plant
Invaders: Concerns and Controls." Ms. Clark will discuss the problem
of invasive exotic plants in our back yards and communities. What do
they look like, why are they a concern, and what can you do to help
control these pervasive nuisances?
This practical presentation will include slides and answers to your
questions. Ms. Clark's talk will be held on Tuesday, February 3rd,
at 7pm, at the Woburn Police Station (25 Harrison Ave, Woburn)
Frances Clark conducted a study of Arlington Great Meadows and
published her results in: "Natural Resources Inventory and
Stewardship Plan of Arlington Great Meadows, in Lexington,
Massachusetts," in July 2001.
