Aquifer and Groundwater Protection
The towns of Belmont, Northfield, and Tilton are very fortunate, in regards to our existing and potential future needs for drinking water, to be located on a large stratified drift aquifer. Water is the most basic of resources, and the three towns have a great responsibility to assure that we preserve water quality and conserve water quantity for future generations. Each of our towns recognizes that we share this valuable resource and agree that there is the need for continued collaborative drinking water resource planning. In order for one town's efforts to be effective, they must be complemented by actions in each of the other towns. Thoughtful planning which works to balance economic growth with groundwater protection will assist our towns in maintaining the viability of common drinking water resources into the future.

Town of Belmont Water Meter Replacement Project, Public Information – FAQ Sheet
In 1893 the Belmont Acquaduct Company constructed the municipal water system. Three wells were dug on Windmill Hill and the reservoir was constructed with a capacity of 115,000 gallons. Water was conducted to houses through wooden (logs) pipes which were banded with iron. Late in the same year the town voted to purchase the assets of this Company for $9,000. Included in the purchase were twenty hydrants, 500 feet of hose, a hose carriage and fire fighting tools.
