In 2016, the Cotuit Water Department provided 265,892,000 gallons of drinking water to 2,295 homes, businesses, and public buildings.
We monitor and analyze the water to check that it meets or exceeds all state and federal standards. We provide an annual report detailing the water quality which is sent to every residence in Cotuit and is also available online. Annual maintenance on structures and equipment allow us to get the full use of capital expenditures.
Our mission is not only to provide water for today’s use, but to plan for future needs for the village. We are constantly assessing our infrastructure and our well field areas to assure that we can continue to meet the water needs for our village.
