8 SCITUATE APRIL 11-17, 2019 | VALLEY BREEZE & OBSERVER | SMITHFIELD SCITUATE FOSTER GLOCESTER EDITION "we are more than just the host of the reservoir, but in many ways stewards as well." The Narragansett Bay Commission had expressed interest in purchasing the water supply in the Scituate Reservoir, which sends water to various communities through the PWSB. The value of the supply, which brings water to about 60 percent of the state, has been pegged at about $400 million. Though there has been talk around town about Scituate purchasing or leasing the PWSB, McCormick said it is not something the town is pursuing and it is something he finds "hard to envi- sion." The PWSB is prohibited from making a profit off its sale of the water to other cities and towns. "Anyone who takes it off city of Providence will face some pressure to get return on their invest- ment," McCormick said, adding the Public Utilities Commission is not likely to place the burden on the ratepayers. Elorza conceded last week that the plan had many roadblocks in the way of actually pulling it off, noting the concerns expressed on finances, logistics and the environment, among others. Elorza said the city will need to take collective ownership of the pension and look at a statewide effort to fix the city's underfunded pension plans. "This will require us speaking with a collective voice," Elorza said. The Providence Water Supply Board serves cus- tomers in Providence, North Providence, Cranston, Johnston and parts of Smithfield.
