It's Official! Hingham Owns Weir River Water System

Weir River Water System

It’s official!  For the first time since 1879, after several years of study and deliberation, a historic Town Meeting vote, and 15 months of transition prep and planning, the Town of Hingham officially owns the water system serving Hingham, Hull, and North Cohasset.  This acquisition marks the culmination of nearly 9 years’ worth of work by citizen volunteers, staff, and external partners.  It is a historic day for us all.

The water system has been renamed the Weir River Water System.  It will be operated and maintained by industry leader SUEZ under the direction of the Board of Water Commissioners and the newly hired Water Superintendent.  What does this mean for water customers?  

  • Water service will not be interrupted by the ownership transfer.
  • Water rates are unaffected by the ownership transfer.
  • All customers will receive one final bill from Aquarion for service through July 31, 2020.
  • Your normal billing cycle should not change.
  • Water restrictions will remain in effect.
  • Safety Valve water line protection plans are unaffected by the ownership transfer.
