For Immediate Release: 5/11/2018 3:12 pm
The City of Worcester has scheduled a public information meeting for Wednesday, May 16, beginning at 6:30 p.m., at the Worcester Senior Center, 128 Providence Street.
At the meeting, the Department of Public Works & Parks will present information on a new planning initiative called the Integrated Water Resources Management Plan (or Integrated Plan). The Integrated Plan will prioritize DPW&P’s water resources goals to help spend its limited budget efficiently and minimize impacts to ratepayers as it provides the services the City depends on.
The Integrated Plan will evaluate drinking water, wastewater, and stormwater needs. DPW&P wants your input on the proposed priorities for evaluating potential projects to address those needs. The Integrated Plan will benefit Worcester residents, businesses, and the environment.
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 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. DPW&P’s 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.
Anyone who is interested in how DPW&P spends its water and sewer dollars should attend this meeting. Visit the Integrated Plan website for more information and to sign up to receive meeting notices and updates by email.
