WOONSOCKET – The Woonsocket Regional Wastewater Treatment Facility has been in compliance with DEM since last Friday, Director of Public Works Steven D’Agostino told the City Council on Monday. Still, he said, there are “major issues that need to be addressed.”

On June 6, DEM announced in a press release that they were investigating the discharge of partly treated wastewater from the plant located at 11 Cumberland Hill Road in Woonsocket, which began the morning of June 5.

Uhm no Mr. D’Agostino. Woonsocket allows the plant to operate. Woonsocket took the job, and Woonsocket accepts waste from other communities for money. It's always been and will forever be Woonsocket's fault and problem.
