Contamination Response Measures Result in National Award


In October 2019 the Westfield Water Department was awarded the #1 Top Project Award by the Water and Wastes Digest, a national publication dedicated to water and wastewater utilities. This accolade was granted for the Department's response to treat water from wells that had been contaminated with PFAS, a chemical found in firefighting foam used at the Barnes Air National Guard Base. Temporary and permanent treatment measures were quickly put in place, gaining high praise from the publication.
