Abington: Emergency Water Supply in Question at Union Point

The Executive Director of the Southfield Redevelopment Authority appearing before the Abington Board of Selectmen last night for an update on the Union Point development project.

Selectmen delved into issues from emergency access points to firefighters not having enough water at the development during an emergency.

Now getting water to Union Point has been a long-standing issue.

Developer Lstar has promised to supply water from the MWRA – a huge and costly undertaking.

The Southfield Redevelopment Authority’s new Executive Director Paul Niedzwiecki says it’s a top priority.

Abington Advisory Board Member Joe Shea is questioning whether or not construction at Union Point should move forward until there’s enough water available in the event of a fire emergency.
