The event will feature research and analysis conducted by EPA, the City of Cambridge, and others, and the issues will include: 

  • new climate change models and flood maps for watershed cities and towns;

  • modeling efforts around nutrient pollution in the Mystic;

  • results from a human health risk assessment for boating on the Malden River; and

  • new research from University of Massachusetts Amherst researchers on the little-known lives and ecology of juvenile river herring in Upper Mystic Lake and Horn Pond.
