Devens Utilities Announces End of Bottled Water Program. Successful installation of activated charcoal filter treatment systems at two drinking water wells will allow the use of tap water at Parker and in Devens generally going forward. Here is the letter to Devens Utilities customers dated October 8, 2019.
As Devens Utilities winds down the bottled water program for Devens residents and Parker, they plan to pick up the empty carboy-sized jugs and chillers when we are done using them. Based on current usage, it will take us about a week to use up the bottled water already on site (stored on loading dock). Meanwhile, facilities staff will flush all the bubblers, change filters, and do other “road testing” of our water fountains so that they’re ready to go next week.
