Overview


Works with town staff, appropriate consulting and engineering firms, and other town boards and committees to ensure the protection of the Town of Amherst's water supply. It does this by:

  1. monitoring the current and projected water supply needs of the Town, and the infrastructure needed to provide that volume of drinking water;
  2. monitoring the presence or possible introduction of hazardous and/or toxic materials into the Town's drinking water;  and
  3. analyzing the significance of trends in data monitored in the Atkins and Pelham watersheds, and Lawrence Swamp aquifer in respect to drought.

The committee makes its recommendations to Town Council and the Town Manager.
