When a sewer discharge or overflow occurs, the Needham DPW sends out a public advisory notification. On business days, this webpage will be updated within 2-4 hours of the notification. During weekends or holidays, this webpage will be updated on the next business day.
You can also see a list of discharge and overflow events on the MassDEP website (link below). This list is updated within 24 hours of when the public advisory notification is sent. Enter “Needham” in the Permittee field and click “Search”. https://eeaonline.eea.state.ma.us/portal/dep/cso-data-portal/
The fastest way to get information is to sign up to receive public advisory notifications. From the Needhamma.gov main webpage select the tab "Alert/ / Notify Me" to access the subscribe page. SSO notifications will appear under "Alert Center" category.
