Waushakum Beach Stormwater Runoff Improvement Project Status: Design
The purpose of this project is to prevent beach closures due to poor water quality by improving stormwater runoff systems. The City of Framingham was awarded an Accelerating Climate Resilience grant from the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC). With this grant, the City will explore retrofits for Lake Waushakum’s s public beach and bathhouse, focusing on sustainable, nature-based solutions. The City will evaluate potential designs for green infrastructure, solar, and/or other climate-resilient improvements to Waushakum Beach. The City's Senior Stormwater and Environmental Engineer, Kerry Reed, will act as the Project Manager for the grant's scope of work. The City will rely on our experienced, interdisciplinary project team to ensure project success.
