The Hingham Sewer Commission provides sewer service to approximately 2,500 residences and/or businesses in the North Sewer District (NSD) and 180 residences and/or businesses in the Weir River Sewer District (WRSD). We currently maintain about 30 miles of sewer pipe and 13 pump stations.


The town is broken down into 2 separate sewer districts:

  • North Sewer District - Approximately 2,500 businesses and residences connected to it, this flow goes directly to the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority.
  • Weir River Sewer District - There is sewer service provided for approximately 275 houses in the West Corner section of Town. The flow from this district, combined with the flow from approximately 300 houses in Cohasset goes to the Wastewater Treatment Plant in Hull.
