MAPC & MWRA: These Trails Were Made for You and Me! MAPC & MWRA: These Trails Were Made for You and Me! Presentation Transcript

  • From 1790 – 1940, aqueducts were built to supply water to Greater Boston.
  • By 2012, the historic aqueducts and reservoirs were out of daily use. But the pristine land was kept closed off.
  • Everything changed in 2012: the MWRA voted to open 40 miles of trails through back-up and abandoned aqueducts.
  • The aqueduct trails build on a long history of public access on certain MWRA properties. Quabbin Reservoir, Belchertown, MA
