Comprehensive Wastewater Management Plan (CWMP)

The CWMP is a 604 page living plan to implement Wastewater in the Town of Harwich.  The most recent version, is a prepared by CDM Smith, is dated March 29, 2016.  While the Water Department transitions to Wastewater we will work to build our webpage and provide the most relative information that residents are seeking. 

Meanwhile, here are some great links to help catch you up to speed:

Wastewater History

Several wastewater committees served to develop the Comprehensive Wastewater Management Plan (CWMP).  The, now defunct, Wastewater Support Committee was the most recent committee that advised the Board of Selectmen on implementation progress and issues with special attention to effective public outreach including resident input and discussion, sources/uses of funds and implementation of appropriate adaptive management measures.  Thank you to all of those volunteer members who contributed to development of the CWMP.  

CWMP implementation is complex and involves many players.  From the Town Administrator (& town staff), Town Engineer, Water & Wastewater Superintendent, Board of Water & Wastewater Commissioners, Board of Selectmen, Health Director to the consulting services of CDM Smith and Weston and Sampson.
