Water and Sewer Updates


Dwight Road Parking Lot is currently closed while the Water & Sewer Division investigates the existing stormwater drainpipes and catch basins in the parking lot area for needed repairs.

Leak Detection 

The Department of Public Works has contracted New England Water Distribution Services to perform a Leak Detection investigation throughout Needham on our water distribution system (no excavation or construction equipment is needed for this task). The work consists of using a listening device at hydrants and various valves during the quiet evening and low system flow hours and pinpointing potential leaks in our water system. The contractor will be notifying the NPD Dispatch anytime they will be working.
