DENVER, Colo. – Manchester Water Works Lake Massabesic Water Treatment Plant received the rarely achieved Phase IV "Excellence in Water Treatment" recognition from the Partnership for Safe Water.
This program is a national volunteer initiative developed by the USEPA and other water organizations representing water suppliers striving to provide their communities with drinking water quality that surpasses the required federal standards. Phase IV is the highest possible level of performance that can be achieved in the four-phased Partnership for Safe Water program, and signifies optimized plant performance. Only ten other water utilities in the nation have reached this performance level.
"Reaching Phase IV status is a very significant achievement in our ongoing work to meet stringent performance goals," said Thomas M. Bowen, P.E. Director. "Improving the quality of our water remains a goal we will continually strive to meet and exceed."
