The Town approved funding for the design of a water treatment facility to remove manganese from the source water. The Town has hired Woodard & Curran as the Owner's Project Manager and Wright-Pierce as the designer. Design work is nearly complete and we expect to go out to bid for the construction of the plant soon but not in time for the May 2017 Town Meeting.
June 2017: The bid review was completed and preparations for the June 20th Special Town Meeting are underway. The funding request for the treatment plant project will be $10.4 million based on the bid results. Information about the request can be found in this article. The request was approved and construction is expected to begin in August.
