Water Department Voice Broadcast System

The Water Department maintains a separate water customer database and separate voice broadcast system. The primary phone number record in our database is used for Water Department Voice Broadcasts.  We anticipate moving our broadcast system to Civic Ready if, and when, it can meet the needs of the Department. 

If you want to be sure that you receive notification from the Water Department, please be sure that we have the current phone number you would like to use.  You can do this via our online address change form , by email to or by contacting our office at 508-432-0304 x0.

The Water Department posts notices on our website at, FacebookTwitter.  These notices may also be relayed through the Town News FeedTown Subscriber UpdatesChannel 18 and Cape Cod Chronicle.
