Dover starts drinking water upgrade project

The Associated Press

DOVER (AP) — The city of Dover, New Hampshire, has broken ground on a new project to upgrade its drinking water supply and treatment facilities.

Its first phase will replace a water treatment facility originally built in 1957. That's expected to be completed in the spring of 2018. The city received a loan from the state of $8.5 million for it.

The second phase, scheduled for 2017 to 2019, will include upgrades to pump-stations and storage tank facilities, at an estimated cost of $9 million.

The state Department of Environmental Services also is working with the city to resolve an MtBE contamination program and replace its Griffin water supply well.
