Board to consider water options

January 2, 2011

WOONSOCKET — Keeping a campaign promise to do so before the end of 2010, Mayor Leo T. Fontaine last week seated an advisory board to evaluate the costly and controversial options for building a new water treatment plant.
A public interest advocacy group, the Woonsocket Taxpayers Coalition, has been openly urging the mayor to create such a panel. The group, headed by Steve Lima, who challenged Fontaine in the 2009 election for mayor, has questioned Fontaine’s support for a plan that calls for buying water from Pawtucket, at least for a time, to satisfy all of the local needs.
