Intel Assabet Groundwater Recharge Fund
The $1.5 million Intel Assabet Groundwater Recharge Fund has supported community projects that directly recharge water that would otherwise be piped into a stormwater sewer system or discharged straight into a stream or river. These projects are increasing the amount of groundwater available during dry periods to maintain the base flow of the river and its tributaries. OARS has provided administrative support to the Fund and managed the proposal process.
The six recharge projects are:
Floral Street School--Shrewsbury
Department of Public Works--Westborough
Bolton Library-- Bolton
Junction Park-- West Concord
