Possible Water Main Break - Brookside Road
Friday, January 22, 2016:
Residents of Brookside Road may experience a temporary loss of water service due to a water main break in the area.
We are currently working to locate and repair the break and will re-establish service (if necessary to shut down) as soon as possible.

Once the break is repaired and water service is restored, please run your COLD WATER for a few minutes to clear any discoloration.
New Online Bill Pay Service Provider for Water Bill Payments 12/1/2015
City Hall Systems will be replacing Unipay as the Online Bill Pay Service Provider for the Westford Water Department on December 1, 2015. The two systems offer similar features with a few improvements.
- Paying out of your checking account by ACH E-Check will be free starting on December 1st for Water Bill payments.
- Payment by Debit or Credit Card will be subject to credit card company fees based on a percentage of the amount being paid, with a minimum fee of $3.00. For this reason we strongly recommend using ACH E-Check to avoid all fees.
- Customers can pay as a guest or they can establish a user account. Note: Anyone who previously established a user account with Unipay will have to establish a new user account with City Hall Systems. We’re sorry for any inconvenience but think you will like the new provider.
- Customers who establish a user account will gain access to some great features; payment scheduling, payment history inquiry and new to Westford - E-Billing.
- We are very pleased to offer E-Billing to our customers! You may sign up to receive your bill via Email only (E-Billing), or to have your bill delivered via Email and US Mail (E-Notice). Once signed up, you will receive a notice via email each quarter.

Service Line Insurance
Periodically our customers get calls from companies offering water service line insurance. We would like our customers to know that the Westford Water Department does not endorse any service line insurance product or company, and we recommend exercising due diligence before making a decision to purchase insurance. Before considering purchasing service line insurance you may want to check with your home insurance company—as some policies do offer some coverage for service line repairs or replacement.
