IMPORTANT: Residents Must Register Irrigation Systems

The Sharon Water Department is collecting data on all irrigation systems to ensure that every back flow preventor is in compliance with state regulations.

Back flow preventors protect our town water system from chemical and bacterial contamination.

Register your system on-line at: www.townofsharon.net/irrigation

Irrigation forms are also available at the Sharon DPW, 217 S. Main St.

Contact DPW Superintendent, Eric Hooper at 781-784-1525 with questions.
