Malden River Interest Group Meeting 1/31

Malden River – Creating a Vision for the Future

Do you live in Malden, Medford or Everett?
Do you care about the condition of the Malden River? 
Was the Malden River Always Like This?
Are you satisfied with the state of the Malden River?
Are there opportunities to restore public access or get parts of the river cleaned up further?

If any of the above questions intrigue you, please join us for a meeting with a purpose:

Development of a local advocacy group of diverse constituency that will seek environmental restoration, public access and sustainable development along the Malden River Corridor.

The Malden River is currently a 1.7 mile channelized river with a checkered history of environmental contamination. The river is challenged by poor water quality and legacy contaminants in the sediments.  Access to the water for boating is limited to a single private dock.  But the history of the river says that there is more than what meets the eye.  Historically the river was tidal with salt marsh and small streams lining the edges.  The river extended in a sinuous fashion further north in a stream all the way to Ell Pond in Melrose.

Please join us on the 3rd floor of the offices of the Tri-City Community Action Program (Tri-CAP), 110 Pleasant St.,  Malden at 6 PM on Thursday January 31, 2013 to help us guide a future for the Malden River. Participants will include other local residents, Tri-CAP, Alternatives for Community and Environment (ACE), the Mystic River Watershed Association (MyRWA) and Tufts University.

If you have any questions, please email Patrick Herron (
