After almost fifty years of providing clean, safe, reliable drinking water to so many Town residents in that span of time, the Fryer family sold Dover Water Company in December of 2010. This was not an easy choice for them since their parents constructed Dover Water Company with much hard work and personal dedication. The acquirer of the water system was Colonial Water Co. (CWC), a subsidiary of New England Service Company (NESC), which has devoted all its technical skills and management capabilities to ensure a continuation of the quality service provided over the past several decades.
CWC has recently made water system infrastructure improvements to the Francis Street wellfield site with regards to the production well, piping and electrical controls. Currently, CWC is working on infrastructure improvements at the Knollwood Drive pump and treatment station. Later in 2018, CWC will implement a new SCADA system. This system will give CWC personnel enhanced data and operational capabilities.
On 6/28/18, CWC acquired the assets of the Springdale Farms Water Supply Trust (SFWST). Located in Dover, the SFWST consists of 41 customers served by an independent water distribution system. CWC personnel previously performed the daily operations of the SFWST system for the two years prior leading up to the acquisition.
