Please email Matt Weisman or email Ross Morrow if you have questions in the meantime.
Sewer System Improvements (Updated December 29, 2023) This project, over many phases, includes sewer repairs and rehabilitations for both structural and infiltration related defects. Infiltration is clean water from below the ground (groundwater) that enters the sewer system through defective pipes and structures. This “clean” water takes up valuable space and capacity in the sewer pipes that would normally be available for wastewater. It can cause the pipe and service conditions to back-up and potentially overflow during extreme wet weather conditions, and it costs the Town’s sewer rate payers money to send this “clean” water to the MWRA system. In order to correct many of these issues, repairs and rehabilitations are being made as part of this project. We will update the website once scheduling has been set for this construction season. Any questions or issues can be directed to Marissa Liggiero at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The parking lot on North St near the intersection of Adams St will be closed throughout the project.
