A bright new logo will be displayed on Weir River Water System trucks, letterhead, and signs once the transition from Aquarion Water Company to Town of Hingham ownership is completed by the end of July.
The Hingham Selectmen charged the Water Transition and Evaluation Committee with developing a logo for the newly-named system. "We wanted a professionally-designed, identifiable logo that captured its essence," said Committee Chair James Taylor.
The committee interviewed many experienced designers, including Will Uronis of Hull and Steve Pratt of Hingham, who were ultimately hired to design the logo, working as a team.
"The Water Transition and Evaluation Committee believes the new logo represents the quality, cleanliness, and reliability that all customers expect from their water company," Taylor said. "The logo itself is made up of two water droplets which form a portion of the Weir River, a primary source of our water and the basis for the name of the system. Customers will begin seeing this logo used in many ways as the transition to municipal ownership occurs."
