Protecting Our Drinking Water
The Pepperell Water Division recently posted Drinking Water Protection Signs in the neighborhoods that abut the town's water supplies. These signs are part of our Consumer Outreach Program to alert residents within or near our Aquifer Protection Districts that our Groundwater is vulnerable to contaminants.
To maintain a safe water supply, we all need to do our part in protecting it. What we do with or on our land directly affects the quality of our drinking water. There are a number of ways in which all of us can help reduce the possibility of contamination of our water supply.
