(Holyoke, MA)  —  Holyoke ratepayers could soon be footing the bill for a three-million-dollar water disinfection plant.  The plant would use ultraviolet light instead of chlorine.  The Holyoke Water Works says it’s necessary because of a federal mandate from the EPA.  Holyoke already has exceptionally pure water from two carefully-managed reservoirs. The appropriation must be approved by the City Council.
