How does Wellesley’s Fee Compare to other Towns?

Wellesley’s fee is in the upper range of stormwater fees in Massachusetts.

Many towns only fund compliance program costs. Additionally, Wellesley is in the Charles River Watershed and is subject to more stringent requirements to reach phosphorus reduction targets.
