Working Together to Conserve Our Water

The Town of Sharon has a long and proud history of protecting and preserving its drinking water supply, which comes solely from groundwater wells.  However, drinking water wells always remain susceptible to contamination and drought.  Impacts to Sharon’s wells come from things like:

  • residential land use (fertilizers, pesticides, septic systems)
  • accidental spills from local roadways (Route 95 and the railroad)
  • hazardous materials storage
  • existing contamination sites
  • agricultural activities

Residents can help protect the Town’s drinking water supply through water conservation practices, proper septic maintenance, and limiting chemical use.

Neponset_logos_vertical_CMYKThe 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.

WSlogo_Excellence2013_colorThe 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.
