Water & Sewer Division

Customer Alert!

The Water & Sewer Division has been informed that some Wellesley customers have received solicitation notices from private companies offering maintenance and inspection services. The Town of Wellesley is not affiliated with nor sponsoring these services. 

Homeowners are responsible for the maintenance and repairs of water and sewer connections from the foundation of their property to the main sewer connection or water curb stop. 

If a problem occurs with your service, please contact the Town for assistance. We can aid in determining the most appropriate solution, which may include Town assistance with repairs or replacement (at the owner’s expense), or finding a reputable private contractor. 

If you have  concerns about the legitimacy of a business or the type of service they are offering, please reach out to the Wellesley Department of Public Works at 781-235-7600 or via email at dpw@wellesleyma.gov.


The Water and Sewer Division is currently upgrading Wellesley’s water metering system.  This project is necessary but involves no additional charge to residents.

Help Prevent Sewer Backups​

Flushing wipes, paper towels and similar products down toilets will clog sewers, cause backups and overflows with internal plumbing and within the Town system.  Even wipes labeled as "flushable" will clog pipes and interfere with the sewer collection system and pumps. Please dispose of these items in the trash. 

Please NEVER Flush:

  • Paper towels, disposable wipes, washcloths and rags
  • Any synthetic materials such as plastic, which do not decompose or dissolve
  • Feminine products
  • Cotton balls or cotton swabs
  • Unused medication or syringes
  • Fats, oils and grease
