Lectures & Conferences
The public is invited to join the staff of the Neponset River Watershed Association on February 7th at the Canton Public Library from 6:45 to 8:00 pm for an Annual Presentation of local water quality results.
The water quality data comes from water samples that were collected monthly, from May to October, from forty-one sites in Canton, Dedham, Dorchester, Hyde Park, Foxborough, Mattapan, Medfield, Milton, Norwood, Sharon, Stoughton, Walpole, and Westwood.
All of the water samples were taken by a group of volunteers who work with NepRWA as part of the decades long Citizen Water Monitoring Network. These dedicated citizen scientists are an invaluable resource in helping to identify areas in the watershed that need attention.
Following the water quality report will be a presentation by Hillary Waite, Environmental Coordinator for the Town of Milton, who will speak about the Town’s partnership with the Watershed Association and the groundbreaking steps they are taking to prevent polluted stormwater runoff in their community.
