Outflow Monitoring Science Advisory Panel Meeting - Scituate, MA

The Bay from Scituate, MA

Hey Ya'll,

On October 3rd I had the opportunity to attend a meeting of the Outflow Monitoring Science Advisory Panel in my capacity as a Policy Intern here at Save the Harbor alongside Bruce Berman and my fellow intern Patrick.

The meeting was a chance for me to get acquainted with recent and upcoming environmental, scientific, and policy issues and accomplishments surrounding Boston Harbor. I was pleased to have the opportunity to chat at some length with Dean Mark Patterson of Northeastern University about his work out in Nahant; and with Dr. Betsy Reilley of the Massachusetts Water Resource Authority (MWRA) about the business practices, product choices, and infrastructure that the MWRA has developed while being a key part of the Boston Harbor clean-up. It was quite a productive day in a absolutely beautiful place!
