The CWPC, along with their consultant Camp Dresser & McKee Inc. (CDM), will update the community on the status of the Integrated Water Resource Management Plan, the approaches that have been used to evaluate Brewster’s watersheds, ponds and drinking water wells, and the findings to date.

The Integrated Water Resource Management Plan is essential to the planning process currently under way to address Brewster’s long-term water management needs. Community education and participation is critical to the planning process since the quality of the town’s fresh and salt waters affects all of Brewster’s citizens.

For those unable to attend in person, the meeting will be recorded and aired by Channel 18.
