This is one of the best articles about the history that started in the early 1990s about the drought in Brockton.
Why Brockton had to find an alternative source of water.
All the Council and Mayor involved in the decisions none are on the council anymore say one when the decision was made in 2002.
How Brockton was consuming 13 million gallons of water a day and was able to get it down to 9 million a day, a level that the water department could handle.
Former Mayor Balzotti and the Lawyer Department have looked at the contract and unfortunately we cannot break the contract. If we could we would of down it in the last five years.
There are many questions that still need to be answered like what is the current capacity of our water department and if Brockton and candidates and the people want to move forward. Water is vital for growth of any city and if we were to grow and attract businesses and we needed 13 million gallons a day. Would the current water department be able to handle it.
