Our current MWRA connection provides a maximum of 4.2MGD. Current max day demand is over 6MGD, so our existing connection cannot meet demand in the peak use months. We count on our Morses Pond Treatment Plant as our largest local source to help meet that demand. Also, MWRA water is much more expensive than our locally produced water and rate increases will be needed for additional amounts of MWRA water used. This is especially true in the non-peak months because of the cost. In the summer, our peak rates are designed to cover the added costs of MWRA water.
