Water Resources Advisory Committee

Please note, the Town of Yarmouth is moving forward with a Yarmouth centric wastewater solution rather than the previously proposed Dennis-Harwich-Yarmouth (DHY) solution.  We are currently working to update our website and video resources to reflect this change.  In the meantime, please note that the DHY solution is not currently under consideration.   We appreciate your patience while we work to complete this update.

The general purpose of the Water Resources Advisory Committee is to investigate ways to involve and educate the community on issues relating to water resource initiatives in Yarmouth, including water supply, surface water, groundwater, stormwater and wastewater, with the goal of protecting and restoring the Town's fresh and salt water bodies and its drinking water supplies. Specifically, the Committee is charged with:

  1. At the request of the Board of Selectmen, conduct public workshops, presentations, and other public-information sessions for residents and businesses about Yarmouth water resource initiatives, and provide the Board of Selectmen with citizen feedback.
  2. Upon receipt of financial plan(s) for water resource initiatives supported by a majority of the Board of Selectmen, will inform the public and provide the Board of Selectmen with citizen feedback.
  3. Meeting, as necessary, with any multiple member boards to effectuate its purpose.
  4. At the direction of the Board of Selectmen, focus on specific areas of implementation or other related wastewater, groundwater, surface water and drinking water matters.

Videos for all of the Water Resource Advisory Committee meetings are available on the Town of Yarmouth's YouTube channel.

Agendas for all upcoming and past Water Resource Advisory Committee meetings are available on the Town of Yarmouth's Agenda Center.
