Thank you to the volunteers who ensure the gardens are maintained. We currently are working on replacing a plaque that went missing. This bronze plaque contained quotes from Abigail Adams. Abigail Adams is the first First Lady who was concerned about equal rights and brought the issue forward.
With the Town of Weymouth and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts recognizing the importance of the natural heritage of the Back River watershed, we are confused by this unnecessary project that would have a long term impact on the herring run. The cost of the bridge is $400,000. The cost to the herring run is priceless..
Recognizing the flood control system at the bottom of the herring run in Jackson Square was trapping herring on their way up to Whitmans Pond, the town of Weymouth along with support from the State is committed to addressing this problem that impacts the long term productivity of the herring run.
We are happy to be working with Andrew Hultin of Weymouth’s Park and Recreation Department, who is designing interpretive panels for the Back River Trail.
The development of the former South Weymouth Naval Airstation has proven difficult at best. The biggest concern for the BWRA is the permanent water source.
The Compressor station in North Weymouth is a project that should not have happened. The site is at the mouth of the Fore River and Back River and the long term impacts to the Back River and its estuary is impossible to forecast.
