Metro South Regional Water/Sewer Authority Investigative Analysis

The Metro South Chamber of Commerce commissioned the Economic and Public Policy group to develop background research regarding a possible regional water and sewer collaboration in the Greater Brockton region of Massachusetts.

There are a number of possible benefits often associated with regional water and sewer service, including:

  • Enhanced economic development opportunities;
  • Greater rate stability and consistency between municipalities;
  • Better management of costs, including the execution of system-wide capital improvements; and
  • Standardized water quality and supply between municipalities.
