Treatment

Drinking water is supplied to the town from 5 groundwater wells and 2 reservoirs. Water from the wells gets treated on-site prior to being pumped directly into the distribution system. Raw (untreated) water from the Dow Brook and Bull Brook reservoirs gets treated at the Water Treatment Plant located at 274 High Street prior to its introduction into the distribution system. 

Four licensed operators are responsible for the treatment process. Staff includes a Superintendent, Chief Operator, Assistant Chief Operator and an Operator.
