As part of the Town’s stormwater public education initiative, Maynard officials are reminding residents of the harmful effects fertilizer can have on water quality.
It’s hard to imagine that a green, flourishing lawn could pose a threat to the environment, but the fertilizers you apply to your lawn are potential pollutants! “If you use too much fertilizer in your lawn or garden, rain can wash it into our streams, wetlands, and even the Assabet River” says Kaitlin Young, Maynard’s Conservation Agent and Assistant Town Planner. “This can have a devastating effect on water quality and the overall ecosystem.”
The Town is accepting interested applicants for consideration to be appointed by a Joint Meeting of the School Committee and Board of Selectmen to fill a recent vacancy on the School Committee for a term to expire June 30, 2020.
