Coming Up: Public Tours Of The City Waste Water Plant And New Water Treatment Plant

The City of Northampton and the Ward Three Neighborhood Association are inviting the public to tour the Wastewater Treatment Plant and the City's brand new $24 million Water
Treatment Plant, on March 29th and May 3rd, respectively. For municipal junkies, this is very exciting, it's like a field trip for municipal geeks! Yes!

"The Ward Three Neighborhood Association, in cooperation with Ward 3 City Councilor Bob Reckman, has scheduled a public tour of the City's Wastewater Treatment Plant and Flood Control Building on: Saturday, March 29 at 10 AM. The plant is located on Hockanum Road. Take the first driveway on the right after you go under the railroad trestle. The tour will be
led by Superintendent George Brehm. This facility is well worth seeing, especially the wonderful old flood control building that pumps every year to keep the lowest areas in the City from flooding.

There will also be a tour of the City's brand new $24 million Water Treatment Plant on:
Saturday, May 3 at 10 AM. This plant was opened in late January and provides the City with
water that is carefully filtered and therefore requires far less chlorination. The Water Treatment Plant is located on Mountain St. in Haydenille/Williamsburg. Please take the first driveway on the left once you see the Mountain St. reservoir on your right. This tour will be conducted by Alex Roseweir, the chief operator. Parking is limited, so carpooling is encouraged.

If you have any questions, please call Councilor Reckman at 413-695-0281."
