Mayor Katjana Ballantyne and the City of Somerville Engineering Division invite you to a series of community meetings to discuss flood mitigation in Somerville.

The City is developing a Citywide Drainage and Water Quality Master Plan, a collection of infrastructure projects that will reduce flooding, improve water quality, and mitigate combined sewer overflows. After years of modeling and evaluation, the Engineering Division and its consultants have developed 30 projects that would address the root causes of flooding and prepare Somerville for climate change. Now, the City is ready to present these ideas and get feedback from the public. Community input will help identify preferred alternatives and determine which of those 30 projects are included in the final Drainage and Water Quality Master Plan. 

The proposed projects will be presented over the course of three meetings. Each meeting will focus on a different geographic area of the City:

Each meeting will also be recorded and posted on the project website, along with surveys and additional opportunities to provide input. To learn more, visit
