What caused the March 2010 floods? Where were the floods and why? What are wetlands and floodplains, and why are they beneficial? Why was sewage mixed into the water flowing into some basements?

Panelists Bob Zimmerman, Tom Daley and Fred Abernathy will explore questions about the Charles River watershed, storm water management, and what happened last spring.

Sept. 21, 7 pm, Druker Auditorium, Main Library
