Forum On Lead in Drinking Water Postponed

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning for tonight into tomorrow morning for the metropolitan Boston area.

As such, the MWRA has decided to postpone the March 21 Forum on Lead in Drinking Water, as many of the participants are responsible for snow removal in their communities and will have been up all night or busy with clean-up duties.

Given the importance of this Forum, the MWRA wants to make sure as many people as possible can attend.

We will work with the Authority to reschedule as soon as possible. We apologize for any inconvenience.
