SWSC’s Water Treatment Plant Featured on Connecting Point

WGBY’s Connecting Point recently visited our West Parish Filters Water Treatment Plant in Westfield to learn how drinking water is treated. The past, present, and future of drinking water treatment is all visible at West Parish Filters, which was originally constructed in 1909 and received its last significant modernization in 1974. WGBY’s Brian Sullivan also got to take a look at the new “pilot plant,” which is testing out new treatment processes to be constructed at the plant in the near future. The piece highlights the many different steps involved in the treatment of safe drinking water for our customers, and what the Commission is doing update drinking water treatment for the 21st century.
