About Town of Buckland

The plant operates and maintains a regional Water Resource and Recovery Facility with an outfall into the Deerfield River since 1974. The average daily flow is 0.2 millions of gallons a day (MGD). The plant, like other Water Resource and Recovery Facility, uses biological processes to clean the waste and pathogens from the water. It is unique in that remaining sludge is then sent to reed beds where more of the water is removed. During the disinfection season between April 1 and October 31, the effluent is treated with ultra violet light.
