State Representative Linda Dean Campbell recently made the case for investment in wastewater infrastructure upgrades that would mitigate or stop the flow of sewage pollution in our waterways.
Rep. Campbell has been a champion on this issue for years. The impacts of sewage pollution are especially severe in the Merrimack River, which flows through her district in Haverhill and Methuen.
To honor her history of strong advocacy, we recently honored her alongside Senator Pat Jehlen and former Representative Denise Provost at our Annual Celebration at Hale Reservation in Westwood.
"Never before has there been such public attention on this issue and such strong public consensus that we need to act now! I was also honored to be recognized by the Massachusetts Rivers Alliance for lead sponsorship and passage of the state law requiring public notification of CSOs."
