Alewife Brook and Little River
Map (small) of proposed detention basin and storm drains

The two projects are new large stormdrains - one with a detention pond, and one adding to the current start of Alewife Brook...leading to a doubling of the width and depth of Alewife Brook to the point it meets Little River.

The map was displayed by the Department of Public Works in their presentation.

The image shown here is from a photo taken by a community member attending the meeting.
