MWRA Progress on CS0s-- Meeting with DMF on Fort Point Channel

Recently we came across the 2009 report on the MWRA's effort to close Combined Sewer Overflows (CSOs). It is impressive to see the tremendous progress that has been made in this ongoing effort. You can see the report by clicking on this link. 2009 MWRA CSO report

Last week Mat Brevard and I met with the Massachusetts Division of Marine Fisheries to discuss a proposal to raise oysters in an upweller for distribution in the much neglected Fort Point Channel. The dialog was both in depth and productive. Unfortunately there remain some concerns on the DMF-side that will lead us to rethink our strategy for Fort Point Channel. The meeting ended with us agreeing to submit a more detailed proposal on Fort Point Channel.
