Going It Together

December 12, 2012
Cultural Center of Cape Cod, Yarmouth

This workshop will provide an opportunity for local officials to learn about and discuss what using a regional approach to solving Cape Cod’s wastewater problem means for towns. It will provide an update on the regional wastewater management plan being developed by the Cape Cod Commission and address frequently asked questions about the plan, the path for implementation, and the process for collaboration. It will also include a case study of the Boston Harbor clean-up effort led by the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority (MWRA) and lessons learned that could be instructive for Cape Cod. This case study will be presented by the former Chief Financial Officer of the MWRA. The workshop will feature a mix of presenters and group discussion and address issues such as financing, cost savings, affordability, regional authority, administration, technology solutions, collaboration, and community engagement.  Conference Agenda & Speaker Information
