Major storms can cause overland flooding and sewage backups into homes and businesses in low-lying areas. Although overland flooding can not always be prevented, sewage backups can be avoided if your property is properly equipped with a backwater valve.
If you have purchased property, a Change of Ownership/Billing Name Form should be completed and submitted after the real estate closing. The form is available at BWSC’s offices at 980 Harrison Avenue, Boston, MA 02119 or by downloading the Change of Ownership form.
This form also applies to condominium associations, apartment buildings, etc., who have authorized property agents to receive and pay their BWSC bills. There is no charge for this service.
The completed change of ownership form can be mailed to:
