The state found a compliance violation in Greenfield’s public water system last year.
Greenfield’s Department of Public Works had to make repairs to their three wells that are stationed in the northern part of the city.
The State Department of Environmental Protection conducted an inspection of Greenfield’s public water system last June. Their inspection found a compliance violation in the city’s three Mill Brook wells off of Log Plain Road.
The violation included issues with the wells’ vents and chlorine analyzers. Greenfield’s DPW made the necessary repairs after they received the findings of the state report.
Jean Dwight, a Greenfield resident, told 22News, “It’s good to know they make the trips down and we see them on the weekend. They seem to be quite mindful of what they’re doing with the wells.”
Greenfield DPW Director Don Ouellete told 22News, the compliance violation wasn’t a factor in the water and sewage rate hikes that went into effect earlier this year. Ouellete also said the wells’ issues didn’t have any impact on the city’s drinking water.
