BREWSTER — Brewster may need to spend more than $30 million on sewer projects to meet pollution reduction targets established by the Department of Environmental Protection for Pleasant Bay.
Nitrogen reduction quotas were agreed to under the 2018 joint Watershed Permit for Pleasant Bay issued by the DEP to Brewster, Orleans, Chatham and Harwich.
Orleans, Chatham and Harwich have previously launched construction projects and spent millions on sewer systems as they strive hit those targets.
The update on the town’s Integrated Water Resource Management Plan was prepared by the Horsley and Witten Group and reported to the Select Board and Board of Health Jan. 27.
