WATERTOWN — Tuesday’s storm brought down numerous trees and wires necessitating the closing of many roads. “Our Highway Department has been out in full force cleaning debris and opening roads where possible,” said Interim Town Manager John Gavallas. “However, in many cases we are waiting for Eversource to remove wires so that our crews can safely access the downed trees and debris. Our staff will continue to work diligently to open all our roads as soon as possible.”

Recognizing that many homeowners are faced with the challenging task of cleaning up debris and fallen trees on their property, Mr. Gavallas is suspending the dumping fee and permit requirement for town residents to utilize the transfer station for the disposal of vegetation only, through Saturday, August 29.

The transfer station will remain open for town residents from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday until August 15.
