MISSION STATEMENT407a Images
The Groton Water Department is responsible for the management and maintenance of Town of Groton's drinking water resources and the distribution system utilized to convey this resource to residents and businesses throughout the Town.
The Groton Water Department's mission is to protect the water resources of the Town, treat the water to ensure that it is safe and clean, and upgrade and maintain the distribution system. Protection of the water supply resources minimizes the amount of treatment required and, in direct relationship, treatment costs.
Continuous upgrading and maintenance of the distribution system ensures that an adequate supply of drinking water will be available to consumers now and in the future. The first priority of the Groton Water Department is to provide an ample supply of safe, clean drinking water to residents, and businesses, at an affordable price. Additional goals of the Groton Water Department are to include keeping abreast of newly promulgated drinking water regulations and technological developments associated with drinking water supplies, treatment methods, distribution systems and essential fire protection. Continued education for staff in the field of drinking water prepares us to meet current and future federal and state drinking water mandates and to provide for the future water supply needs of the Town of Groton.
