MASSACHUSETTS WATER RESOURCES AUTHORITY

EMERGENCY RESPONSE TEAM

 

From The MWRA: While not fire apparatus, the MWRA ESUs are designed to respond to any suspected incidents of intentional or accidental contamination of the water system that might result in a shutdown of the MWRA system.  The MWRA supplies 62 communities with water for firefighting, drinking and industrial use. Having to shut down the system would have catastrophic results, so contamination incidents have to be identified and remediate at once.
