When a sewer discharge or overflow occurs, the Bedford Water/Sewer District sends out a public advisory notification. On business days, this webpage will be updated within 2 to 4 hours of the notification. During weekends or holidays, this webpage will be updated on the next business day.
You can also see a list of discharge and overflow events on the MassDEP website. This list is updated within 24 hours of when the public advisory notification is sent. Enter "Bedford" in the Permittee field and click "Search".
The fastest way to get information is to sign up to receive public advisory email notifications by visiting our E-Alert page and checking the box for Sanitary Sewer Overflow Advisory Notices which is located under "Free-form Document Updates".
