Upgrades to the intersection of Route 27 and Route 30 are currently underway.  This project is being completed by Newport Construction under the direction of MassDOT, and is scheduled to occur in phases over the next 18 months.  Every effort will be made by the State to minimize traffic disruption, including performing work at night when needed.  During this project, please anticipate delays and follow all construction signage as well as the direction of on-site police officers.  Please direct any questions regarding this project to MassDOT at 877-623-6846.

We appreciate the understanding of residents as the Town of Wayland, State of Massachusetts, and Utility Companies coordinate our efforts to take advantage of the construction season to complete these necessary infrastructure improvements.  For continued status updates, please follow the DPW’s Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/WaylandDPW/.




WATER BAN UPGRADE
August 17, 2016

Effective immediately, The Water Division is upgrading its level of Water Use Restriction to the following:

  • Underground sprinklers & above ground sprinklers attached to hoses:  Underground and above ground sprinkler use is prohibited until the termination of the Water Ban.
  • Handheld Hose:  Handheld hose watering is permitted after 5:00pm.
On August 12th, The Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs upgraded the Drought Status for the Northeast Region of the State to a Drought Warning.  Areas within the Drought Warning, including Wayland, are currently experiencing precipitation levels 5 to 8 inches below normal.  Our Water System is currently keeping up with daily water demand, but the ground water levels measured at our sources are below normal.  

The increase in water use restrictions is vital to ensure the supply of potable drinking water and to provide water for fire protection.  

For more information please visit www.wayland.ma.us and click on the DPW tab.  If you have any questions, please contact the DPW Office at 508-358-3674.  For more info on why conservation measures are necessary, please visit the Water Division's Water Ban Q&a page.
