About the Project

The Muddy River Flood Risk Management Project has been undertaken by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (N.E. District), with the support of the local non-federal sponsors, Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation, City of Boston, and Town of Brookline. It has been financed with federal, state and local funds. Planning, design, permitting, project coordination, and funding have taken place through various public forums over the last 20 years.

Phase 1 of the project was completed in 2016, restoring a key section of the Muddy River at the Landmark Center as an open-air watercourse with new culverts and bridges created at the Riverway and Brookline Avenue. Phase 2 will include dredging of the island and sand bar at Leverett Pond in Olmsted Park in Brookline, and dredging and other improvements at various locations downstream along the Muddy River in the Riverway and Back Bay Fens.
