MyRWA Receives Grant to Address Stormwater in Arlington

MyRWA is pleased to share the announcement of funding through the 319 Nonpoint Source Competitive Grants Program for the Egerton Road Green Infrastructure Demonstration Project in Arlington. The project includes two curb extension bioretention basins at the Egerton Road/Herbert Road intersection - a site previously identified as best meeting technical criteria and community needs by a 604b‐funded development study. These bioretention basins will beautify the streetscape, decrease crossing distance for pedestrians, and reduce the discharge of pollutants into Alewife Brook. The project is expected to begin late spring 2017.
