What is the Town doing for a short-term solution?

We are supplementing our water with the 1 million gallons we can currently take from the MWRA via our Phase 1 pipe through Lexington. We have a bottled water rebate program in place for vulnerable populations until we can reduce the amount of PFAS6 in our water town-wide. Information for this program can be found on the PFAS page of the website.
