Town-Wide Mandatory Water Meter Replacement Program



The Water Department has initiated a mandatory program to upgrade all Town water meter to a cellular read meter reading system. Which means that all residential water meters in Town will need to be replaced with these new cellular meters. The Water Department has hired a third party vendor, Mass Installation Inc. (MII), to install theses meters. The program will continue until all residential meters have been replaced.

Notices will be sent to all residents to schedule appointments when the company reaches your section of Town. Please call the 800 number on the notice to schedule an appointment to have your meter replaced. If a resident does not respond to the flyer, Mass Installation may go door to door to attempt to schedule an appointment.

This meter replacement is at no cost to the homeowner's that already have existing Town water meters in their homes.

If people have questions or concerns they can call the Water Department directly at 508-697-0910.

Join the South Shore Curling Club





The South Shore Curling Club is already planning for the upcoming 2018-19 curling season, and we hope you’ll be part of it!

Join the South Shore Curling Club

We have worked with the Bridgewater Ice Arena to add a second night of curling. If you've wanted to curl with us, now you can!

You can join our Fall Season on Tuesdays (10 weeks from Oct–Dec) and our Winter Season on Mondays (10 weeks from Jan–Mar) — both nights we'll be curling from 8:10-10:40pm. The cost is $80 to join the club (to cover dues, insurance, etc.) then $150 per season ($300 for all 20 weeks). 

To answer some frequently asked questions:
the only prerequisite to join is that you've participated in a Learn to Curl (see below)
no equipment is necessary (you can use the club's brooms and sliders)
you don't need to join as a team (we'll assign teams)
it's OK if you can't make it to every night

You can sign up now on our website:

Learn to Curl

If you haven’t had a chance to try curling at one of our Learn to Curls yet, we’ll be having some sessions before the seasons starts in the fall. Dates are still TBD, but we will send registration info to this mailing list when we do know.

If you have any other questions, just ask.

Good curling!
