Mission Statement

Unanimously approved by the Sherborn Select Board April 1, 2021

Groundwater is a uniquely essential natural resource in the Town of Sherborn. All Town-owned buildings and the majority of residents and businesses rely on this resource as their water supply. The availability and quality of groundwater are vulnerable to both natural and man-made influences; consequently it is critical that the Town afford consistent and ongoing attention to protecting this natural resource.

The purpose of the Groundwater Protection Committee, as an informed group of appointed volunteers, is to provide advice to other Town Committees and Boards that serves to protect both the quality and sustainability of this resource. The Committee meets on a regular basis to:

  • Identify and review issues that impact groundwater.
  • Communicate and collaborate with other Town Boards and Committees to promote the preservation and protection of Sherborn's groundwater.
  • Coordinate and lead opportunities for business owners and residents of all ages to increase their understanding of matters related to the value and preservation of this resource.
