Second test confirms water quality in Sherborn Town Center

Posted by Ralph Ranalli July 10, 2008 06:59 AM

In recent quality tests, water drawn from a town-owned parcel of land that could become the source for a public water district in Sherborn's Town Center met all state primary drinking water standards, town officials said.

The tests were the second round conducted on samples taken from test wells at the Price Woodlands. They were deemed necessary after first round tests found high levels of iron and manganese -- a result that, if confirmed, would have required the installment of an expensive treatment system.

Town Planner Gino Carlucci said the first round samples were likely contaminated by rust in the test well equipment.
