There was a big ribbon cutting ceremony on Saturday at the Top of the Tank - a new underground reservoir that can provide emergency water to 22 communities (including Stoneham, Winchester, Revere...). It's an impressive accomplishment and facility - however Melrose is not one of the 22 communities it can serve. Does anyone know why? Seems odd considering our proximity to the Fells. Was also wondering if this is why our rates are higher - are we not part of this "water" community group?
