ABOUT THE DISTRICT
The North Sagamore Water District is routinely inspected by the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP). The DEP inspects our system for its technical, financial and managerial capacity to provide safe drinking water to you. To ensure that we provide the highest quality of water available, your water system is operated by a Massachusetts certified operator who oversees the routine operations of our system.
Currently we are supplied by three active gravel-packed wells; the Black Pond Well, which was installed in 1979, Well No.1 (the Beach Well), installed in 1958 and the Church Lane Well installed in 2001. All wells are ground water sources. The District currently does not have any interconnections with other water districts as a backup supply.
The aquifer in the Church Lane area is part of the extensive Plymouth/Carver Aquifer. The Black Pond Well is the prinicpal source of water and the Clark Road Tank level controls the pumps operation during normal conditions. The Beach Well primarily functions as a peaking well, supplying water only during peak demand periods. There are presently three above ground storage reserviors (standpipes) in the District; the Bournedale tank, the Clark Road tank and Norris Road tank.
