Storm Water System

Issue summary

Flooding occurs around Quinobequin and other Waban areas after rainstorms due to a variety of factors including storm system overflows. In the document Library is the presentation of newton's plan - starts on page 5.


Based on the suggested increased price for Water and Sewer my family would be paying 1000. per year more for water! It wouldn't be so bad if I could install a second meter for the water used to water my lawn.

This increase will be coming after the Newton Assessor's have increased the value of Newton homes-- so we are now paying higher property taxes. (our property taxes have almost doubled in the past ten years, even though the value of our house has not increased in tandem and we have NOT done any major renovations.)
I oppose an increase in water fees. I feel that the cost of living in Newton is already prohibitive for many families.
