Guest Speakers:
Dick Breton, veteran Kiwanian and Chairman of the Board of Commissioners of the Laconia Water Department, introduced our hosts and speakers for the evening. This included board members and staff of the Laconia Water Department.

Seth Nuttelman, superintendent, presented a little history to the club. In 1955, the City of Laconia purchased the Water Works.  It is operated under Chapter 99 through an Enterprise Fund, this means it covers its own expenses through the funds it collects. In other words, it doesn’t use tax dollars to operate.  The Laconia Water Department includes a five member Board and 16 employees. 

Employees present gave the club a tour of the lab, central control, chemical application (flow process) and the new building that is currently being built.
