What is the Town doing for a long-term solution?

Approved at September 2021 Town Meeting, we will be installing a filter at the Mill Pond Water Treatment plant to reduce the amount of PFAS6 town-wide. We expect this project to be complete by the end of calendar 2022. We will also supplement the Mill Pond water with MWRA water.
