EPA STEERING COMMITTEES

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) convenes a Mystic River Watershed Steering Committee to address the issues and needs of the communities and natural resources of the Mystic River Watershed. The Steering Committee includes 22 organizations including not-for-profit community groups, local, state, and federal governmental agencies. The Steering Committee works to build consensus among stakeholders to develop and implement watershed-wide goals aimed at improving water quality in this urban river system. Attend an upcoming meeting to learn more!

It is now time to restore this watershed, to make it a place that once again provides opportunity for activity—both recreational and industrial—that benefits its citizens with a clean and healthy natural environment.

EPA SCIENCE SUB-COMMITTEE

The EPA Science Sub-Committee contributes scientific data and interpretation that can be used by the Steering Committee and the public at large to drive sound decision-making in the watershed. The greatest value of the Science Sub-Committee is the opportunity for scientists, technical staff and decision makers from Federal, State, and watershed groups, universities and other NGOs to share information, collaborate on projects and to exchange the latest scientific information that relates to water quality in the Mystic River Watershed. The activities of the Science Sub-Committee culminate with an annual meeting for scientists to present recent findings on the watershed. The agendas and presentations of the meetings are presented below.
