What We’ve Done

Over Thirty Years of Achievements

For over thirty years, the Advisory Board for MWRA Communities has worked diligently to advocate for MWRA ratepayers and communities. From continuous in depth review of the Authority’s financials, to shaping major capital project decisions saving millions of dollars, as well as recommending common sense approaches to MWRA policies and procedures, the Advisory Board views itself as a “constructive critic” helping the Authority to better achieve its core mission. The video below recaps thirty years of achievements by the Advisory Board for MWRA Communities.
