Wellesley Water Supply

News from Friends of Brookside reports that the Wellesley Country Club has applied to build a new 6-hole golf course in Wellesley’s Water Supply Protection District.
The affected land in is in Wellesley’s aquifer protection zone, (Zone II), serving more than half of Wellesley’s wells. Friends of Brookside has been advocating for an organic approach for the new development, and also Audubon Golf Certification (to provide more checks and balances given it’s a sensitive water resource) and has yet to get a commitment from the Club.
With solid citizen support, the Wellesley Zoning Board could require a tighter, certified turf management program for this new course.
