Mystic River Restoration Forum Takes Place in July

The Mystic River Restoration Forum, to be run by the Conservation Commission, Department of Planning & Community Development and Department of Public Works, will take place on Thursday, July 6, in the main room of the Senior Center in Arlington, MA. 

The meeting aims to provide a project update and an opportunity to gather public input to help assist in the developing community participation for the project.

The project, scheduled to begin later this year, will create a native riverbank (riparian) habitat and improve storm-water quality.

This scheme will restore the riverbank through slope stabilization, the removal of a broken concrete head wall, natural ecosystem enhancement and water-quality improvements.

The project will also include participation from the surrounding community in plantings, developing educational signs along the existing adjacent footpath and stewardship of the newly restored habitat.
