Protecting water resources is on everybody’s mind but a hard fact is that municipal storm drain systems are a major source of pollutants to waters of the Commonwealth. Over 200 Massachusetts towns discharge stormwater under U.S. EPA’s NPDES Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems permit (the MS4 Permit). This 5-year permit, jointly issued by EPA and MassDEP, requires towns to meet minimum control measures.
How is Maynard preparing to meet that challenge? Join us as we explore this crucial issue with Town Consultant Lori Kennedy of VHB and Maynard Conservation Agent Katie Young. They will explain what Maynard is doing and how it will affect us all.
Another “do not miss” episode for anyone interested in Maynard’s cultural, economic and community development!

Sidewalk construction is scheduled to begin the week of Monday October 29th, 2018. Construction activities include excavation, sidewalk paving and roadway paving. The Town of Maynard has contracted with Detour Construction LLC to complete the construction services.
Locations are as follows:
Summer Street – Brooks Street to Apple Ridge Road
Great Road – Tiger Drive to Winter Street
Once construction is started, no on-street parking will be allowed until all construction activities are completed.
As construction progress, homeowners on affected roadways may not be able to access their driveway with vehicles when crews are excavating and paving sidewalks directly adjacent to the property. Individual driveway work may take 2-3 days to complete at each location. Temporary walkways will be installed over the sidewalk while it cures to allow for pedestrian access to each property during construction. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Construction will start on Summer Street at Brooks Street the week of October 29th, and will continue through the above listed streets. Construction is scheduled to continue through the fall, weather permitting. Construction will continue in spring of 2019.
If you have any questions please contact the Maynard DPW at 978-897-1317 or DPW@townofmaynard.net.
