The Mystic River Watershed is the most densely populated and urbanized watershed in New England. With nearly fifty percent of the watershed developed and paved, heavier rain events mean more widespread stormwater flooding. Once filled-in tidal rivers and marshes now represent growing risks of chronic flooding. We need to make more room for the river.
In September 2018, ten cities and towns, facilitated by the Mystic River Watershed Association (MyRWA) and Consensus Building Institute (CBI), launched the Resilient Mystic Collaborative which focuses on increasing social and physical resiliency to climate change. Come find out what Winchester and our neighbors are doing together to prepare our people and places for unprecedented and unpredictable weather.
