The MassDEP notified the Town of Hopkinton that it exceeded the Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) for PFAS for the third quarter of 2021. We must now provide a plan to reduce PFAS to levels below the MCL and provide an alternative water supply to those residents in sensitive subgroups. Hopkinton has developed 4 options and would like your feedback on those options. We ask that you consider taking a brief survey that will help us to finalize our decision. We truly appreciate your assistance in this process and we thank you for your time.

HCA Members Art Exhibition

By contributor,

A showcase of works from a community of artists comes together this month at the Hopkinton Center for the Arts in the Annual HCA Members Art Exhibition. There are common threads throughout the artwork that depict what brings us peace, what amuses us, and people and places that bring us hope. Reading in a quiet corner, playing with layers of colorful paint, and spaces that help us to heal whether it be a church or a sunset. There is a sense of hope and new horizons depicted in the artwork this year.
