Windham Road Booster Station Update

We are currently working on PHASE 2 of this project, which consists of updating the fire pumps, a standby generator and putting all the pumps, domestic and fire, on VFD’s controls. We are aware of some inconsistencies in pressure during morning hours and we have had a water outage due to the old equipment (which is scheduled for replacement) malfunctioning. Work on Phase 2 is scheduled to begin as soon as the new equipment is delivered. We are making all the necessary advancements to avoid the pressure inconsistencies.
