Fire Chief Anthony Stowers and the Maynard Fire Department wish to announce that Eversource is conducting precautionary inspections in town.
Eversource crews are inspecting and testing supply lines throughout the town out of an abundance of caution. Utility and public safety officials do not believe that there is any immediate cause for concern. Testing will take place tonight and continue into next week.

As many of you know, there has been a recent and dramatic rise in violence and discrimination against Asian and Asian American people in the United States and around the globe. Reports of horrific violence aimed Asian people in this nation continue to emerge. These actions are always devastating – to individuals, to families and whole communities, across ethnic and “racial” lines.

Each year, the Town of Maynard provides its customers with an Annual Water Quality Report to share information on how our water quality compares to established federal and state drinking water standards. We encourage you to review this report as it provides details about the source and quality of the drinking water delivered to you in 2020.
In an effort to be more environmentally responsible, we are no longer mailing paper copies of the Water Quality Report, but have made them available on the Internet. Click here to read the 2020 Water Quality Report. For more information on the town’s water supply, please visit the DPW’s Water & Sewer Division page.
If you wish to have a paper copy, you can pick up a printed Water Quality Report at Maynard Town Hall or the Maynard Public Library.
