Regional Water Conservation Pilot Program Receives Grant

A grant for a regional water conservation pilot, including Stoughton, Canton, Foxborough, Sharon and the Dedham-Westwood water district for $90,770, was awarded by the Patrick Administration Monday.

The administration announced more than $1.1 million in grants to help 16 communities with water conservation, demand management and other water withdrawal mitigation projects.

“Preserving the Commonwealth’s natural resources yields both environmental and economic benefits,” said Energy and Environmental Affairs (EEA) Secretary Rick Sullivan. “These grants will help conserve our water resources, restore important water habitats and improve Massachusetts’ water supply.”

Funding was awarded to projects that will increase in-stream flow, improve the handling of wastewater and stormwater, upgrade ecosystem habitat, manage water demand and improve the water supply.
