NORTHBRIDGE, Mass. - Riverdale Water Company, Inc. (RWC) is donating 155,000 gallons of water and the cost to deliver the water to the Whitin Community Center.
The water will fill its competition pool after its annual maintenance this week.
James Knott, owner of RWC, has been a long-time supporter of the Whitin Community Center and its mission to enhance the health and well-being of individuals and families in the Blackstone Valley.
The water will be transported and pumped by RCL Trucking and Nala Industries at a discounted rate.
“We are very fortunate to have wonderful community partners such as Mr. Knott who appreciate the benefits and value of having a community center in their neighborhood,” said Mike Robertson, chair of the WCC Board of Directors.
The Whitin Community Center, a non-profit organization, is open to all, regardless of
residency and serves more than 5,000 members.
RWC has developed a new source of potable water in Northbridge. This water passes all of the drinking water standards set by the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection and the EPA without treatment.
Riverdale Water Company is currently in negotiations with Northbridge officials to become a second source of drinking water for the residents of the Town of Northbridge and to
supply emergency water to neighboring communities.
The Whitin Community Center offers social, recreational, educational, and outreach programs that bring community members of all ages and backgrounds together. The Whitin Community Center is the Blackstone Valley’s most complete family and recreation center with two swimming pools, a gym, a fitness center, aerobics studio, Spin/ TRX studio, childcare programs, summer camp, and a seven-acre park.
