Stormwater Pollution Prevention

Preventing pollution in our rivers and lakes takes everyones help!

Everything that goes into our storm drains goes directly into our local water bodies. If you see any possible pollution discharge to a catch basin, drainage swale, or directly to a stream or river, please call the Stormwater Hotline at 508-764-5403 and report the location and the type of pollutant you suspect is being discharged. If you see an illicit discharge on the weekend or after normal business hours, please call the police department at 508-764-5420.  

Below are some information and links on how you can help. Please do your part!
