Water Quality

Shrewsbury DPW - Water & Sewer Division - started the implementation of a plan based on Biological Filtration (New Water Treatment Plant) and Hydrant Flushing to improve drinking water quality for the residents, as stated in the "Substitute Motion for Article 21" approved by Town Meeting on May 2019:

"We move that the Town (1) continues its testing of the Biological filtration system on a regular basis; (2) establish a plan to work towards the goal of reducing Hexavalent Chromium (Cr+6) levels in the Towns water supply to be equal to or below the state average; and (3) keep Town residents informed of the above activities by using communications channels including the Town Website and Town water bills."
