Fort River Watershed Feedback
The MA Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness (MVP) program awarded Amherst a $170,000 action grant to study three Town culverts for replacement.  The goal is to replace these aging, deteriorated, culverts with more open crossings that will improve flood resiliency, allow for wildlife passage, and improve the overall health of the Fort River.  This year, using the MVP funds, DPW will work with consultants and contractors to collect data on the culvert locations including hydrologic and hydraulic, wetland, and geotechnical information.

Your feedback on the importance of these culverts, and how you value the health of the Fort River, is important to the Town's process.
