Watertown auto shops receive grant to go "greener"


Megan Baldwin, who works for the Town of Watertown Health Department, has received a $5,000 grant from the Toxics Use Reduction Institute (TURI) at the University of Massachusetts Lowell.

The program, which is funding seven community grant projects that aim to reduce the amount of toxic chemical use in the state, announced that it has granted money to the Auto Shops Alternatives Project, headed by Baldwin, to provide training for 45 auto shop owners.
