Frequently Asked Questions  *Under Construction*

Can I connect to sewer? 

Sewer is only available in certain areas of East Harwich. This area is also known as Phase 2. Most parcel owners have by now have received their order to connect welcome packet.  The exception is Continental and Whidah Drives where construction is now in progress.  The Phase 2 Updates page and related lists identify the parcel owners.

If my address is on the list, what happens next?

The Board of Health and Water & Wastewater Department have mailed "Order to Connect" letters and a wastewater welcome packet to most parcel owners, with the exception of construction that is still in progress.  Parcel owners will have 2 years to connect to sewer and this date is based on the order to connect letter date.

If my address is not on the list?

The Town's Comprehensive Wastewater Management Plan (CWMP), released in March 2016, provides a preliminary plan for wastewater phasing.
