Description: Description: Morningdale Pumping StationDrinking Water Sources
The Town of Boylston's water supply consists of 5 gravel packed groundwater wells.  Four of the wells are located in proximity of Rt. 140 and Rt.70.  The other well is located on Scar Hill Rd.  All 5 wells are less than 90 feet deep and draw water from deposits of gravel and sand.  There are also 5 pumping stations, 3 storage tanks and 2 booster stations that service the customers of the Boylston Water District.

State and Federal drinking water regulations require certain chemical treatments before groundwater enters the distribution system. The only chemical treatment process is for corrosion control in which Potassium Hydroxide (which adjusts the pH and alkalinity of the water) is added to minimize lead and copper.
