Utilities Superintendent, Winslow Town Coun- By Andy Heuring Bill Arvin, said both the wa- ter filters inside the water plant and the filter at the riverbank water intake need work. "Our biggest concern is the filter inside the plant," said Arvin. "We need to change the media in the filter. It is get- ting old.

He said part of the filters will need to be painted.
