The EPA has conducted a Five Year Review of the site earlier this year to get a sense of how the project

is progressing and to identify areas where we can make improvements to the process. Some of the

feedback we received from residents, neighbors and community members reflected an interest in

additional community engagement. As a result, EPA wants to make you aware of a couple of public

events planned over the next two months. EPA has also updated EPA’s website with information about

these upcoming events:

The first event marks the return of the biennial community fishing derby at Cornell Pond, scheduled for

Saturday, September 23, 2023, from 7:00 AM – 12:00 PM. (The derbies previously planned for 2017 and

2019 were cancelled due to Eastern Equine Encephalitis and Covid-19.) The objective of the fishing

derby is to collect five species, including Large Mouth Bass, Trout, Yellow Perch, Catfish/Bull Head, and

American Eel, as part of the ongoing environmental monitoring program. More information about the

derby, including how to sign up, will be made available to the public shortly.

The second event is an Open House/facility tour hosted by EPA, MassDEP and the Re-Solve Site Group at

the former Re-Solve property, 1275 North Hixville Road, Dartmouth, MA. This event is scheduled for

Wednesday, October 18, 2023, from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm. Community members are invited to visit the

treatment facility, participate in a walking tour of the grounds, and meet the project staff.
