Town of Wayland to Host Public Forum Before Town Meeting Decision on Water System Changes, April 11

Town Manager Michael McCall and the Board of Public Works invite community members to attend two meetings to discuss potential solutions to issues facing the town’s water supply system.

The public forum will be held on Tuesday, April 11 at 7pm in the Large Hearing Room at the Town Building
Town Meeting: Monday, May 1 at 7 p.m., at Wayland High School

At Town Meeting, the town will decide on long-lasting modifications to Wayland’s water supply. This is a direct result of rising water regulatory compliance costs and vulnerabilities in the town’s water supply infrastructure.

The proposed solution involves making a permanent connection to the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority (MWRA) water system.

At the April 11 public forum, representatives from the MWRA, along with Wayland DPW staff, members of the Board of Public Works and representatives from the engineering firm that completed the system evaluation will give a presentation and take questions from community members.

Town Meeting will include a formal presentation before members are asked to decide on the question of connecting to the MWRA.

“This is an important step forward in securing the stability of our town’s water supply,” Town Manager McCall said. “We look forward to sharing details about the proposed solutions with the town.”
