The purpose of the meeting was to request permission to investigate alternative sources of water for the Town. Currently the wells serving the Town of West Boylston contain Manganese at levels in excess of the recommended concentration. Prior to making the commitment to construct water treatment facilities to address this issue, the Water District is seeking to identify an additional source of water that won’t require treatment. Prior to the meeting Senator Chandler graciously lead the group on a brief a tour of the House and Senate Chambers.
