Last year the City of Brockton signed an Administrative Consent Order (ACO) with the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP). The purpose of the ACO is to regulate and supervise Brockton's management of water from Monponsett Pond into Silver Lake.
A requirement of the ACO is that Brockton develop a Resource Management Plan (RMP) for Monponsett Pond. Brockton has published a draft RMP Scope of Work.
Public comments can be submitted until 260 West Exchange Street, Suite 300, Providence, RI 02903or email@example.com to Ms. Nancy Kelley Beaton, CDM Smith Inc.,
Comments can be detailed and specific by giving a reference in the text, for example, "Task 3, second sentence" ... with a comment on this section of text, and/or more general comments about the RMP as a whole.
The Town of Halifax will be submitting comments, as will the MWA Board. We urge you all to read the RMP and also submit any comments you have.
