HLCT Annual Meeting:
Understanding Our Watershed
• Thursday, March 30, 2017
• 7 PM
• Hingham Library, Whiton Room
We rely on the Weir River Watershed as a renewable resource for fresh water. But sustainability of this aquifer depends on informed choices we make as a community and as individuals.
The Hingham Land Conservation Trust invites you to join us for an informative evening. Gain a better understanding about the Weir River Watershed:
• its nature and scope;
• how we draw from it, and rules guiding annual water withdrawals;
• the importance of land management to this critical aquifer; and
• some steps we’ve taken, or can commit to, as a community and individuals to ensure its sustainability.
Our confirmed panelists include:
Duane LeVangie, Section Chief, Water Management Act, Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection; Steve Olson, Director of Operations, MA Aquarion Water Company
Kristin Uiterwyck, Environmental Policy Specialist; Board member, Weir River Watershed Association; Kirk Shiltz, Hingham Water Supply Committee (Kirk also serves on Hingham Board of Health and Hingham Sewer Commission.)
Richard (Skip) Hull, Chair, Board of Trustees, Hingham Land Conservation Trust
The evening will begin with some time for HLCT members and friends to meet or reconnect as we look forward to the arrival of spring. The formal program begins promptly at 7:30.
All are welcome.
We look forward to seeing you!
