Lawrence WTP Tour - 4:00pm - 7:00pm
Followed by networking at The Claddagh Pub, 399 Canal St, Lawrence, MA
The NEWWA Young Professionals Committee invites you to join them for a facility tour and networking event at the Lawrence, MA water treatment facility, with food and drinks to follow at a local pub. Come learn how a city with one of the lowest per capita incomes in the state has built and maintained a highly successful advanced water treatment facility.
Completed in 2007, the 16 MGD plant serves more than 70,000 residents. It uses the Merrimack River as its source, and uses pulsating upflow clarification, chlorine dioxide, UV disinfection, GAC, mono-media Greenleaf filtration, and fluoridation to produce high-quality water. Learn from the Woodard & Curran operations team how they manage the facility, the intricacies of the design, and lessons learned for the operability of similar systems.
