Crackdown proposed on erosion in Sherborn

SHERBORN

Town officials would be allowed to require erosion control measures for any development of more than one acre of land, under a proposal being considered for the spring Town Meeting warrant.

Town Administrator Dennis Luttrell said officials want to assure that sediment runoff from developments is not ending up in Sherborn’s catch basin system.

The proposal would require changing town bylaws, Luttrell said, and the selectmen will decide at upcoming meetings whether to endorse it for the April 24 Town Meeting.
