Selectmen of the Town of Weston
Michele Grzenda, Conservation Agent, Susan Haber, Town Planner, Robert Morra, Building Inspector, will be holding a public hearing in March to review the proposed Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination Bylaw to be brought to Town meeting in May. The EPA is requiring that by June Towns in the Charles River Watershed test for certain pollutants in its drainage system. Weston has a limited drainage system so this bylaw has different effects on different parts of town. Private roads systems are not monitored by the town but if illicit discharge is found in the town system near a private road system than the proposed bylaw will allow the town to demand the private road to test and remediate any violation to the bylaw. Understand drainage on your property and in your neighborhood.
