  • Monitors threats and risks to the quality of Acton’s ground, surface, and drinking water, from any and all sources
  • Monitors threats and risks to water quantity and water availability, including from overdevelopment, climate change, population growth, and neighboring towns
  • Gathers, organizes and disseminates information and data relevant to water in Acton
  • Works to overcome threats to the quality or quantity of Acton’s water  through citizen advocacy, information sharing, public education, and other means.
