The Board of Water Commissioners have set the FY2017 water rates.   The new rate schedule is available online and includes an 18.7% increase in the water rate.  The rates are based on the budget approved at Town Meeting in May 2016 and the water use forecast for FY2017.

The rate increase is due in large part to the increase in the Water Department's Enterprise Reserve Fund which has been increased in anticipation of bond costs for the Water Treatment Plant Project and Washington Street Water Main Replacement Project.

Water Treatment Plant Information

The project is nearly complete and the plant is fully operational.  All that remains are punch list items such as loaming and seeding.  The plant started full operations on March 6, 2019.
