The Calendar section of the website has failed due to obsolescence. The Town Office will continue to schedule events to avoid conflicts, but there will be a delay in online availability as we switch to a new program. In addition, we believe that the information we had is now lost, so please re-submit any calendar items to Liz Jacobson-Carroll at [email protected] Please bear with us through this transition, and we thank you in advance for your patience.

The FRCOG hasd received funding from the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) to conduct a Fluvial Erosion Hazard (FEH) risk assessment and mapping project for the South River Watershed. This project builds on the recent Fluvial Geomorphic and Habitat Assessment project, which was completed by FRCOG and Field Geology Services and funded by MassDEP.
Field work has begun and will continue through November and December, weather permitting, so you may see the consultants wading in the river and near the river banks. The consultants may also need to cross private property to gain access to the river. If you own land along the South River or its tributaries, please contact the town if you have concerns about allowing the consultants to walk across your land to access the river. Many of you have already met Nic Miller and John Field from Field Geology Services so they will be familiar faces.
A Project Kick-off Meeting will be scheduled in early 2015 and notices will be posted on the towns’ websites, FRCOG’s website and in the local newspapers. If you’d like to have your name added to the project mailing list or you’d like further information about the project, please contact your Town Administrators or Kimberly Noake MacPhee, P.G., FRCOG Land Use and Natural Resources Program Manager, [email protected] or 413.774.3167 x130. For more information, please see the FRCOG press release for the South River FEH project.
