Water for Fish and Farming in Cranberry Country

Friday, September 20, 2013 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA

 

Description:

Come hear how an environmental organization came to purchase a dam along the Sippican River in order to remove it, setting off a legal skirmish with an abutting cranberry grower that drew water from the pond created by the dam.  Then learn how the parties came together in a creative real estate transaction that addresses both the grower's need for a reliable water source and the environmental objective to remove the dam to restore the riverine habitat.
