Print | Email  

GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass. — The Selectboard will meet Monday, Nov. 21 at 6 p.m. with the Great Barrington Fire District to discuss a potential merger with the Housatonic Water Works (HWW) system.
 
The town has been exploring possible solutions to HWW water quality issues, and one includes a merger of the Great Barrington Fire District with HWW system. HWW serves more than 800 customers in Housatonic Village and some neighboring areas. The Fire District serves about 1,700 properties in other parts of town.
 
The two water systems are separated by about 900 feet and a connection would be required along with other infrastructure.
 
The Great Barrington Fire District's water system draws water from underground sources, while the HWW uses surface water from Long Pond. 
 
Meetings are now being held in person at Town Hall with a Zoom option. Log-in details can be found on the town calendar on meeting day.
