River project will entail loud booms

Officials don’t want to incite fear

Loud, gunshot-like bangs will sound in parts of Brookline and Boston through next week, as the US Army Corps of Engineers runs tests on support structures for the Muddy River Restoration Project.

In light of the recent bombings at the Boston Marathon, the project’s managers, local officials, and State Police have launched a campaign to notify area residents not to be alarmed by
the sounds, said Mike Keegan, project manager with the Army Corps.
