Water Pollution Control Facility Upgrade

In September 2007, ground was broken to commence the $30.6 million Water Pollution Control Facility upgrade project.  This upgrade was required to replace 35 to 50 year old worn equipment to improve reliability and efficiency, enhance the treatment process to remove nitrogen as mandated by the State and Federal government, install an ultraviolet light disinfection system to eliminate the use of chlorine, and install odor control systems to reduce odors. The project was successfully completed in 2010.  As a result of this project, the Town has significantly and efficiently enhanced its operation and is able to consistently meet and exceed its discharge permit requirements.
