Join the Falmouth Climate Action team for a forum on pollution in our groundwater, ponds and estuaries and what Falmouth voters can do about improving local water quality!

Sunday, March 23 from 4 to 6 PM

Falmouth Public Library, Main Street, Falmouth

Hermann Meeting Room (downstairs)

Presentations will cover background on why local water sources are deteriorating, various proposals to clean them up, and ways to pay for these plans.

Town Meeting articles related to Falmouth’s wastewater and drinking water will be discussed in light of local economic impact and social justice, ecological sustainability as well as climate change concerns.

Speakers include:

  • Ron Zweig, a member of the town’s Water Quality Management Committee
  • Earle Barnhart, representing The Green Center
  • Hilde Maingay, member of Citizens for Economic and Ecological Sustainability

All three speakers are members of the Cape Cod Commission Upper Cape sub-regional Section 208 Watershed Planning Group and represent an ecologically-sound approach to understanding the use and misuse of water.

Local decisions have global consequences, environmentally and socially. Please join us for free discussion and light refreshments!

Note: the meeting will take place in the library’s Hermann Meeting Room, located in the basement. If the main entrance is locked, please go to the basement entrance.
