Event Details

Please join us for a wonderful evening of great company, good food and lots of talk about water.  It is Mass Rivers' annual tradition to bring together all of our friends and colleagues for a warm and lively evening of celebrating our rivers and the year's achievements.  

Guest speaker: Former Administrator of the EPA, Gina McCarthy

We’re excited to feature a talk by Gina McCarthy, former Administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency under President Obama. A passionate, inspiring, and very entertaining speaker, Gina spent many years working on environmental protection in Massachusetts.  During her tenure in Washington, Gina’s visionary leadership strengthened our country’s environmental, energy, and transportation policies. She will discuss the environmental challenges facing our country, with suggestions for those of us working on these issues.

We are delighted to honor three Massachusetts River Heroes; David Pincumbe, Tim Purinton, and Margaret Van Deusen. As a long-time EPA permit writer, Dave was responsible for hundreds of water quality improvements throughout New England in the past 33 years. Tim (“Dambuster”) Purinton co-founded and led the Mass Division of Ecological Restoration through multiple river restorations in Massachusetts. Margaret Van Deusen, Deputy Director and General Counsel of the Charles River Watershed Association, has been a fierce legal advocate for our rivers since 2000. Her work has resulted in policy changes that will benefit our rivers for generations.
