According to boston.com, Scituate has received two grants totaling $110,000 aimed at fixing longstanding coastal problems.
These grants from the state Department of Conservation and Recreation include $60,000 to help with repairs to the seawall on Turner Road and $50,000 for the dredging project at the intersection of the North and South Rivers.
‚ÄúWe try to focus on public safety issues. We see our role in assisting cities and towns with sign infrastructure issues that they have in their waterways,‚ÄĚ DCR Commissioner Ed Lambert said. ‚ÄúWe‚Äôre increasingly aware of the impact of sea-level rise and weather-cycle changes that create problems.‚ÄĚ
