We held our second community meeting on Monday night, this time online. 50 area residents joined us from Arlington, Cambridge, and Somerville. Elected officials were there, including Senator Will Brownsberger, Arlington Selectboard Member Diane Mahon, an aide from Representative Dave Rogers’ office, and a number of Arlington Town Meeting members. MyRWA Director Patrick Herron presented valuable information, as well.
We discussed the Alewife Brook water pollution, flooding, our vision for safe and beautiful brook, and the upcoming CSO regulatory milestones. Our goal is to rally for passionate public participation which will leads to regional solutions to the water quality and flooding problems in the Alewife Brook / Little River sub-watershed. Because this must be a regional effort, we were very happy to see meeting participants from Belmont, Cambridge, Somerville, and Arlington.
