The Lynnfield Water District (LWD) currently purchases all of its water from the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority MWRA.
The distribution system is made up of cast iron and ductile iron pipe ranging in size from 2" to 12" and totaling 25.5 miles in length. A booster pump station located on Route 1 north bound side is equipped with three pumps; two electric and one gas driven.
There are two water storage facilities within the LWD-both located on top of Bow Ridge off of Route 1. A 565,000 gallon, 60 foot high steel standpipe (tank) built in 1957 and 1,500,000 gallon, 60 foot high steel standpipe (tank) built in 1972.
In 1995/96 the district replaced all its water meters with a new meters and a radio frequency automated meter reading system. Again starting in the fall of 2007 and continuing through 2011, the district replaced the water meters with new meters.
