To assist residents concerned with elevated manganese levels discovered in the municipal water system and with particular concern for infants under 12 months of age, Groton Water Department Superintendent Thomas Orcutt announced that filtered water will now be available for all residents from any part of town, at Groton Town Hall.
Residents should bring their own containers to fill with the filtered water. The faucets for filling the containers are located on the f1rst floor, in the lunchroom in the rear of the municipal building.
Water is available to residents on:
• Mondays from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.;
• Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.;
• Fridays from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
• The Town Hall will be closed on weekends.
The Groton Water Department will continue to collect samples at specified sites and will post the results on its website to better keep our customers aware of their drinking water quality.
