Because the majority of our roadways are unimproved and many parts of Truro are in low-lying areas, Truro is especially vulnerable to environmental onslaughts through rain, wind, and other weather events.
On top of this, as a well-based town, our groundwater – including drinking water – is susceptible to stormwater and roadway run-off that compromises the quality of the water we drink and that feeds our local embayments.
The Cape Cod Commission has been looking at the issues of low lying roads, stormwater impacts and more as part of a comprehensive project. It is also working with Truro as it develops a new Stormwater Bylaw for public consideration soon.
Here are the details of the public hearing:
