Water Enterprise Fund Study Group
In 2022, the Select Board requested a Study Group to examine the facets of a potential change in control of the Egremont Water Enterprise Fund from the Town to a private interest. The Group has assembled information and compiled key performance indicators and some of the myriad consequences from both for either (1) a possible change in control from the Town to Aquarion, a private interest and wholly owned subsidiary of Eversource Energy, or (2) a commitment by the Town to retain the Water Enterprise Fund. Interested individuals can download the Study Group's Final Report below; the report provided context for article 4 on the Warrant for the Special Town Meeting held on November 14, 2022.
Members of the Study Group
- Poly Lanoue (Water Commission)
- Tom Berkel (Finance Committee)
- Robert Noonan (At-large Citizen Member)
Consumer Confidence Report
The Egremont Water Department has completed its Consumer Confidence Report for Calendar Year 2021. The report is a snapshot of the water quality that the Water Department provided last year. Included are details about our water, its contents, and how it compares to Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and state (Massachusetts DEP) standards. Copies of the report are also posted at Town Hall and in North and South Egremont.
Safety Valve Program
The Egremont Water Department has endorsed the Safety Valve Water Service Line Warranty Program by New England Service Company (now Aquarion). Aquarion offers the Safety Valve program either as a one-year or two-year plan.
The Safety Valve Program is a maintenance plan that covers the water service line and the meter valve for repairs and replacement. Both of these items are the responsibility of the customer to maintain; however, a leak or break typically costs between $1,500 to $3,000 to repair or replace. This optional maintenance program is available to all of the Department's customers to protect themselves against this costly repair. The Program is not an insurance plan, and because of this, there is no deductible to cover.
