Where does Westford’s drinking water come from?
Groundwater from the Merrimack River Basin aquifer provides the water source for Westford residents, schools, and businesses. About 75% of residents in Westford receive their water from the Westford Water Department, and the remaining 15% are on private wells. The Westford Water Department operates 9 groundwater wells throughout town, and pumps the water to either the Forge Village or Nutting Road treatment plant. Once treated, the water is pumped into the distribution system to one of 5 storage tanks, from where it eventually makes it into your home, business, or school.
