Another Successful Field Trip!
Viewing Active Construction Sites
Over 90 Advisory Board members and guests attended the annual Advisory Board Field Trip on the 18th. 

As usual, MWRA staff did a stellar job providing detailed tours and presentations of the Chelsea Headworks, Nut Island Pump Station, and the Fore River Railroad.

In addition, after lunch we dedicated a bench in memory of Mary Ann McClellan at the Nut Island Park.

Once again, we thank Mr. Laskey and his staff for a job well done. It was a beautiful day, with plenty of pictures from the MWRA and the Advisory Board
