Time to clean up the Mother Brook

Rob Villegas makes the case to do more to clean up and promote America's oldest canal, which starts at the Charles, flows under the Dedham Mall and reemerges on the other side of Washington Street to flow through a few picturesque stretches but also behind a lot of "grubby dilapidated buildings" and with a lot of stolen shopping cars in it before meeting up with the Neponset.

Shaw's did its share for the Mother Brook, now how about the CVS in East Dedham or the shopping plaza in general? With the amount of trash generated by that location, the Mother Brook is still very much an industrial canal. One need only drive behind the building to see that.

As far as I know, in the areas where Mother Brook runs it still hasn't rained much in a long time.
