The Worcester Department of Public Works & Parks will host a second public information meeting for the City’s Integrated Water Resources Management Plan on Thursday, November 8, beginning at 6:30 p.m., at the Worcester Public Library, Saxe Room, 3 Salem Square.
The purpose of the meeting is to update the community about continuing work on the Integrated Plan. DPW&P staff will discuss the ongoing evaluation of the City’s water, wastewater and stormwater system needs as part of the Integrated Plan, and the related infrastructure needs that will be addressed to benefit Worcester’s residents, businesses and the environment.
“The Integrated Plan will help DPW&P spend financial resources efficiently, to minimize impacts to ratepayers and provide the City with the services residents and businesses depend on,” said DPW Commissioner Paul Moosey.
The presentation will begin at 6:30 p.m. and last approximately 20 minutes. It will be followed by an Open House where attendees can visit stations to view displays and learn more about the City’s evaluation of water resources needs and proposed priorities through conversations with DPW&P and other City staff.
The DPW&P provides high-quality, cost-effective, efficient, safe services involving public infrastructure and facilities that enhance the quality of life and support growth in the City of Worcester, including drinking water, wastewater, and stormwater collection and treatment services.
“Our vision is to enrich the lives of residents by providing welcoming parks and to preserve, enhance and protect our open spaces for present and future generations. Implementing the Integrated Plan will achieve this vision for the City,” states Moosey.
