Did you know that heavy rainfall canoverwhelmour sewer systems causing increased pollution in local rivers? Did you also know that climate change can make this worse?

The Cities of Cambridge and Somerville and the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority are working together to improve our sewers to reduce pollution in our rivers and plan for the future.

Join us virtually to learn how climate change predictions are being used to prepare our infrastructure for future storms, and what that means for the future of our sewer and stormwater systems.

Get involved and make your voice heard in the CSO Control Planning process.
