Stakeholders in western Boxborough, Massachusetts face serious water quality challenges due to drinking water contamination from road salt and wastewater discharge. The MassDEP and MassDOT are seeking a collaborative water solution to address these concerns. The goals of this project were to help research possible solutions and create public outreach materials for affected stakeholders to explain possible courses of action and facilitate collaboration. Collaborating with the town of Littleton to drill a new well and extend their water system into Boxborough was identified as most feasible. The project resulted in framework for stakeholders to continue to work towards finalizing a plan for collaborating with Littleton to help remediate water issues.
