About the Committee
The objective of the Water Policy Committee is to provide a recommendation to the Board of Selectmen related to water policy for use of public water in Ashland. The recommendation may include a revised town bylaw for possible enactment at the special Town Meeting in fall 2015. The Committee is focusing on five areas: use policy, rates, source protection, capital improvement, and education. In addition to bylaw changes the Committee will provide a recommendation on the proposed MWRA connection.
