Public Meeting on Combined Sewer Overflows

Wednesday June 29th at 6 PM

We need you now! On Wednesday, June 29th, at 6 PM, Cambridge, Somerville and the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority (MWRA) are holding their first public meeting via Zoom to discuss Combined Sewer Overflows (CSOs).

The legal limit for sewage discharge in the Alewife Brook is 7.29 Million Gallons. In 2021, 51 Million Gallons of untreated sewage pollution was dumped in the Alewife Brook. The sewage pollution problem has been getting worse, not better.

Actual CSO Discharge volume in the Alewife Brook has been increasing exponentially since 2015 when work on Alewife CSOs ended
(N.B. 2017 & 2020 were drought years).

The Alewife needs you now. Please register for this meeting today & let the MWRA, Cambridge, and Somerville know it is NOT OK to use the Alewife Brook as an open sewer.

Please ask a friend to come to this meeting!

This is the first public meeting to discuss the creation of a new Long Term CSO Control Plan (LTCP) to keep untreated sewage out of the Alewife Brook, the Mystic River and the Charles River.

Say No to Hazardous Sewage Pollution
