IRRIGATION REGULATION – The BOWC voted to adopt an irrigation regulation dated August 25, 2021, which includes a rate increase for non-essential usage.  The regulation can be viewed by clicking here.

In 2022, the Cotuit Water Department provided 202,236,000 gallons of drinking water to 2,351 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 to provide a clean and adequate water supply for the Cotuit District through a central system for drinking, domestic and commercial use and fire protection. We need to own and control sufficient natural land areas for well-field production and aquifer protection. We are constantly evaluating our infrastructure, ensuring regulatory compliance for public health and planning for the future needs of the village we serve. We aim to provide efficient and friendly service to our ratepayers and customers.
