Deputy Under Secretary Dubois Hosts Massachusetts Ceremony

Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Installations and Environment, Raymond DuBois, will host a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the completion of the Upper Cape Water Supply Project, tomorrow, Aug. 10, 2001, at 10 a.m. EDT, at the Massachusetts Military Reservation on Cape Cod. The ceremony will take place at the water tower which is part of the new regional water supply system built by DoD for the Upper Cape citizens.

The Upper Cape Water Supply Project is the fulfillment of the Department of Defense's 1998 commitment to provide the capacity for 3 million gallons per day of drinking water to the Upper Cape communities within three years. The system consists of three wells, a 500,000 gallon storage tank, approximately 10 miles of pipeline and a control system. The project was constructed on schedule and under its $20 million budget.
