Project Description:Bram was asked to obtain and summarize water and/or wastewater master planning documents from "peer" (to MWRA) utilities throughout the U.S. Besides reviewing and summarizing each plan, he was also asked to make judgments about the applicability of different approaches for MWRA’s purposes and to identify "Best Practices" for plan development. He also followed the ongoing regulatory and public participation process for development of combined sewer overflow control plans for the South Boston beaches.
