Water/Sewer Billing

Water Rate Increase - Approved March 25, 2019

At the March 25, 2019 Board of Selectmen meeting, the Board approved new water and sewer rates for Residential and Commercial use.

The need for rate increases is directly related to funding the newly created Water Stabilization Fund to cover expenses related to the Town joining the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority (MWRA).

Please be aware that all water usage from your last reading date going forward will be charged at the new rates. The new Residential rate will be reflected in bills dated after July 1, 2020.
