June 22, 2020 Effective immediately the Town has implemented two watering restrictions

  1.  State mandated ban - no outside watering between 9:00 A.M. and 5:00 P.M. 
  1.  Mandatory odd/even ban.
-residents with odd numbered houses can water outdoors on odd calendar days between 5:00 P.M. and 9:00 A.M.
-residents with even numbered houses can water outdoors on even calendar days between 5:00 P.M. and 9:00 A.M.

These restrictions are mandatory and enforceable by fines. Your assistance is greatly needed in an effort to avoid total outside usage restrictions.  Please check our website for updates in this matter

 

        The Water Commission consists of three elected members.  The Commission also employs an administrative clerk and a Certified Water Operator.  The Commission oversees hydrant flushing, the replacement of defective meters, monthly sampling and reporting.  The Commission is also working on upgrading the system to radio-read meters.

        Currently Town water is available to a very small number of customers on Mendon's borders.  In the 1940's a small water system was established and due to a lack of funding and support, never expanded beyond those few locations.  

        The water system currently services customers on Bates Street, Cape Road, Edward Road, Hartford Ave East, Joseph Road, Mill River Drive, Parker Road, Talbott Farm Drive, and Dudley Road.  Additionaly the Town of Hopedale provides water service to a few properties on Milford St. Harrington St., and Eight Rod Rd. 

 

        Water bills are mailed quarterly and the current rate are listed here.
