MRWC Executive Director Rusty Russell will discuss how home gardening—in the form of rain gardens—can help us address one of the primary water pollution problems in the region: stormwater runoff. He'll also outline new EPA regulations that require greater local effort to deal with the runoff problem.

Give Voice to Our Rivers—
Attend Lobby Day
Join MRWC and dozens of other river advocates, as we meet with our state legislators to speak up for river-friendly bills, including ones that would require real-time public notice of sewage overflows (CSOs) and establish a Merrimack River Commission to monitor and improve the health of our historic waterway. We're hoping for an impressive showing, so if you're interested, email us right away. Please see below for more information on this event.
