THE TOWN OF CHARLESTOWN ON-SITE WASTEWATER MANAGEMENT PROGRAM

Welcome to our website! The Town of Charlestown has been on the leading edge of septic system / on-site wastewater management in Rhode Island since 1994. Protection of our groundwater is of utmost importance as all of Charlestown relies ONLY on groundwater for drinking water. Also, our natural beauty, which is a major economic engine for the area is very sensitive to pollution from failing or substandard on-site wastewater treatment systems. 

Please take some time and explore our webpage. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to contact the On-Site Wastewater Manager.
