Public Meeting Notice Sudbury and Foss Reservoirs Watershed Public Access Plan Update
Overview of Sudbury and Foss Reservoirs Watershed Public Access Plan Update
At this remotely held public meeting, the DCR Division of Water Supply Protection team for this project will provide an overview of the process and timelines that will be used to update 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 Division of Water Supply Protection lands in the Sudbury and Foss Reservoirs watershed.
If you need assistance joining the meeting, please contact Daniel.cushing@Mass.gov. After the presentation, the public will be invited to ask questions and provide feedback on the proposed design.
After the meeting, the presentation will be available for viewing at https://www.mass.gov/dcr/past-public-meetings. DCR encourages the public to share additional feedback, with a deadline for receipt of comments by DCR of October 13th, 2021.
