Somerville Virtual Meetings To Discuss City’s Proposed Flood Mitigation Efforts

As Somerville develops its Citywide Drainage and Water Quality Master Plan, Mayor Katjana Ballantyne and the City’s Engineering Division invite residents to a series of virtual community meetings to discuss flood mitigation in Somerville.

The Engineering Division has developed a series of 30 projects that will help to reduce flooding, improve water quality, and mitigate sewer overflow while combating the root causes of flooding and preparing Somerville for the effects of climate change.

The 30 proposed projects will be presented over the course of three meetings, each of which will focus on different areas of the city:

Wednesday, March 16, 6 p.m. – Wards 5, 6, and 7 (Davis Sq. area & West Somerville)
Wednesday, March 23, 6 p.m. – Wards 2 and 3 (Union Sq. area)
Wednesday, March 30, 6 p.m. – Wards 1 and 4 (East Somerville, Winter Hill and Ten Hills areas)

All meetings will be recorded and posted on the project website linked below. Interpretation may be available upon advance request in Spanish, Portuguese, Haitian Creole, or Nepali by contacting
