COVID-19 And Town Services

As a part of the town's public health priorities, the staff is continually evaluating the effectiveness of our services. Regarding COVID-19 and the town's water and wastewater operations, the coronavirus has no impact on the quality or supply of your tap water. By attempting to keep employees healthy and able to work, sanitation services should not be interrupted.
