Sharon gets its drinking water from groundwater wells, which are highly susceptible to contamination from residential activities adjacent to the wells; residential land uses; accidental spills from local roadways, Route 95 and the railroad; hazardous materials storage; existing contamination sites; drought; and agricultural activities.
The Town has a long and proud history of protecting and preserving its drinking water supply.
Residents have an impact on the quality and quantity of the local water supply, and therefor, the quality of the drinking water. Efficient use of town water will save money, improve our environment, and maintain our water independence.
Please do your part to help protect and preserve our water supply. Check out information on:

The Sharon Water Department has teamed with the Neponset River Watershed Association (NepRWA) in Canton, MA to run the Sharon Water Conservation Program.
The Water Conservation Program consists of award winning educational outreach, toilet & clothes washer rebates, free giveaways (shower heads and faucet aerators), and leak detection.
The Water Department has also partnered with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency WaterSense Program, which promotes water-saving techniques, and encourages customers to look for WaterSense labeled products that have been independently certified for efficiency and performance.
