Haverhill’s wastewater system is getting an upgrade. The Baker-Polito Administration has awarded the city a $40,000 grant to help maintain and enhance its wastewater efforts.

“Our Administration continues to partner with local water authorities to maintain the quantity and quality of their water resources, so they are clean, healthy and safe for all residents across the Commonwealth,” Lt. Gov Karyn Polito said. “These grants will help Massachusetts communities plan for future needs and be prepared for all contingencies.”

Haverhill plans to use the funds to pay for the development of an asset management plan for the plant, Deputy DPW Director Robert Ward tells WHAV. "The goal is to optimize the management of the maintenance, repair and replacement of the equipment at the wastewater treatment facility," he said.

The city is one of 10 communities across the Commonwealth to receive a share in $388,000 of grant money to improve its drinking and wastewater systems.
