Senior Mediator Stacie Smith worked with EPA Region 1 to facilitate a project in Mattapoisett, MA focused on community engagement and preparedness for extreme weather. The project, noting vulnerabilities in their drinking water and wastewater infrastructure, brought together a broad coalition of community leaders to highlight the impacts of hurricanes and storms in the town's past to help the community better prepare for the future. For their efforts, Weather Ready Mattapoisett received an EPA Environmental Merit Award.
