EPA Urban Waters Voices Video Series Locally Led Urban Water Reestoration Effort

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has released Urban Waters Voices, a series of 12 video interviews featuring locally led efforts to restore urban waters in communities across the U.S. These videos feature local efforts and strategies to improve urban water quality while advancing local community priorities.

This week's video spotlights Bob Zimmerman, executive director of the Charles River Watershed Assn., and describes some of the improvements seen in recent years, as well as challenges still faced by Charles River communities (e.g. legacy contamination). The Massachusetts organization uses science, advocacy and the law to protect, preserve and enhance the Charles River and its watershed.
