WOONSOCKET — A consulting team assembled by the Providence law firm of Pannone Lopes Devereaux & West has been hired to evaluate the city’s plans for replacing the antiquated Charles Hamman Water Treatment Plant on Manville Road.

City to divert wastewater cash to coffers

March 21, 2013

WOONSOCKET — On a split vote, the Budget Commission has approved new contracts with Bellingham, Blackstone and North Smithfield that compel those communities to pay the city millions in “host fees” for using the Woonsocket Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant.
The fees, which amount to more than $6.2 million over 20 years, mark the first time the city has taken money from outside ratepayers that will be deposited into the city’s general fund instead of a
self-sustaining, ratepayer-generated fund that supports all other wastewater operations.
