Construction of a new 10,500 s.f. water treatment plant that will remove iron, manganese and PFAS from three of Littleton Water Department’s groundwater sources – Whitcomb Avenue Well Nos. 1 and 3, and Spectacle Pond Well No.5.
Plant will utilize biological filtration to remove iron and manganese and granular activated carbon to remove PFAS.
Treatment plant will have a total capacity of 1.8 MGD.
Project will include construction of a 3.5 mile long raw water transmission main to connect Spectacle Pond Well No.5 to the new treatment plant, and upgrades to the existing Well No.5 pump station.
Total Project Cost is $24,500,000.
Littleton Water Department received a $200,000 grant from MassDEP for assistance with PFAS treatment pilot testing and design.
The entire project will be funded through the State Revolving Fund Loan Program which includes a 0% interest loan.
Construction is expected to be completed in Spring 2023.
ENE Strategies assisted Littleton Electric Light and Water Department with the passage of special legislation in order to build its Whitcomb Avenue Water Treatment Plant, during the 2019-2020 legislative session.
