Why is the Town of Sandwich proposing to fund inter-municipal technical assistance for water infrastructure?  The Town shares four watersheds with our Cape Cod neighbors. We share responsibility to address our town contribution of nitrogen to impaired watersheds outside of our own boundaries.  Water knows no boundaries; and no single town can solve its water quality programs alone. Join Town Manager, George H. Dunham,  Director of Public Health David Mason and Deputy Director of the Cape Cod Commission, Erin Perry as they discuss Article 6 of the Annual Town Meeting on Monday, May 3, 2021, which proposes to invest $1M in WIIF funds for engineering for collection, conveyance, treatment and disposal of waste water and on the design and implementation of water quality improvements for the Shawme Ponds.  

This is #3 of a (4) Part Series of informational videos about the WIIF, how it impacts the taxpayer, the CWRMP scope, purpose and timeline  and about other funding sources and collaborations planned to reduce the financial impact of the CWRMP while improving water quality and increasing economic opportunity for the Sandwich Community.
