The Town of Bridgewater will be pumping 205-thousand dollars into its waste-water treatment plant and sewer facilities.

Numerous pumps, panels and electrical systems will be replaced.
Town council pre-approved the sum from the 2011/2012 budget.

Mayor Caroll Publiclover says upgrades to the system are necessary.

"Allow them to be computer compatible. They'll be able to provide data and take commands from the computer. And they will be reporting very useful data (on) whether they are functioning properly, that's one of the most important parts but there's also various components of the lift stations that are just wearing out," says Publiclover.

The current pumps are more than ten years old and replacement parts are obsolete.

The contract for the design and build of the new treatment plant and sewer lift station has been awarded to Automated Systems Group for more than 261-thousand dollars.
