The Brewster Ponds Coalition and the Town of Brewster present Brewster Pond Summit 2023 on Friday, June 16 from 9 AM to 12 PM at the Brewster Baptist Church (1848 Main Street, Brewster). The Summit will focus on the significant work being done to protect our ponds. While all impairment sources will be discussed, the focus will be on septic systems. The Summit will review what is known about pond impairment and the impact of septic systems, what needs to be learned, action taken and in progress, and the outlook for the future.
The Brewster Pond Summit 2023 will include presentations and discussions by Town officials and experts from the Cape Cod Commission, MASSTC, and the Horsley Witten Group, LLC, reviewing completed and planned research, proposed updates to Title 5 regulations, funding sources, and governance of alternative septic systems. The Summit agenda will also include discussion of what is known about PFAs and other emerging contaminants. Their sources, health impacts, levels in ponds and drinking water, control methods and associated challenges will be presented. There will be time for your questions and additional discussion. A full agenda will be posted on this website soon.
The Summit is an open forum to which Town and area residents are encouraged to attend. It will also be livestreamed. The event is free, but registration is encouraged for BPC’s planning purposes.
Many thanks to the Leighton Team, a BPC Business Partner, for sponsoring this event.
