Water Talk with Joe Duggan, Wellesley's Water and Sewer Superintendent

What is Schmutzdecke?


We were pleased to host Joe Duggan for a water talk focused on the Brookside Area.

Mr. Duggan spoke on the town's infrastructure and local geology, and entertained many questions from the interested audience. Over forty people attended the talk, which was extremely well received. We only wish we had more time to learn from Joe's long and experienced tenure in Wellesley.

The Rosemary Brook Watershed plays a vital role in our town's water supply. A special thank you to Mr. Duggan for enlightening us, and to all who attended, for making the evening a success!  Photos Here
