The Mystic River Watershed Association (MyRWA) received a financial boost with a $20,000 grant from the Massachusetts Environmental Trust (the Trust). This funding will enable MyRWA to continue the TMDL Program.
Testing by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH) confirmed that there were cyanobacteria cell counts above state thresholds in the Mystic River near Blessing of the Bay in Somerville and in Upper Mystic Lake.
MyRWA submitted an application to the Community Preservation Act (CPA) in Somerville to redesign and revitalize the Blessing of the Bay Park. If you’re a Somerville resident and this is important to you – please have your voice heard!
