Windham’s neighboring Towns of Hudson, Derry and Salem have municipal water. The Water Supply Study being discussed currently by Selectmen would investigate the feasibility of an interconnection with one or more of these towns as a source of water.
The most likely candidates are Hudson and Derry. Where does their water actually come from? Hudson sources from the Merrimack River and Derry sources from Lake Massabesic. Once withdrawn, the water passes through a treatment facility and is piped to customers.
One other short term source of water may exist right here in Town. A series of test wells have been drilled in and around the center of Windham, on various parcels of land. The study would look at the feasibility of withdrawing and distributing water from these wells.
