Sudbury and Foss Reservoirs Watershed Public Access Plan Update #2
Overview of Sudbury and Foss Reservoirs Watershed Public Access Plan Update #2
At this remotely held public meeting, the DCR Division of Water Supply Protection team for this project will provide an overview of the proposed revised public access policy presented within the Sudbury and Foss Reservoirs Watershed Public Access Plan. The Sudbury and Foss Reservoirs are emergency water supplies for the DCR/Massachusetts Water Resources Authority system that provides drinking water to over 3 million Massachusetts residents. The last public access plan update for this watershed occurred in 2010.
The purpose of this public access plan is to review existing policies and implement changes based on sound science to control impacts to water quality from passive recreation activity on DCR and Division of Water Supply Protection lands in the Sudbury and Foss Reservoirs watershed.
