Recently I sat down with Paul Kennedy, acting Superintendent of the Water Department (and full-time Superintendent of Wastewater Department) and Kourtney Wunschel, the Assistant Water Superintendent to talk about some of the capital improvement projects we have going on in the city as regards our water systems.

Projects we discuss include:

  • The Luther pumping station
  • The new 6-bay water facility on West Street to house and care for the vehicles required to maintain our water facilities.
  • The Hoppin Hill Reservoir and Dam
  • The Wading River plant
  • The lining of pipes on Elmwood Avenue to address water quality issues.
  • Licensing of water personnel and number of Grade 4 licenses within the Department

On regular days, Attleboro residents use roughly 4.4 million gallons per day. On a high usage day, we can use as much as 10 million gallons per day.
