Payment in Lieu of Taxes (PILOT) Program

The DCR Watershed PILOT Program compensates communities that have DCR property that is specifically for water supply protection.

The Watershed PILOT program is the method that DCR compensates communities which contain the state owned land bought to protect one of the nation's largest unfiltered water supply systems. The law that defines this PILOT program, MGL c. 59 s.5G, guarantees regular and stable payment to 29 Massachusetts communities
