Natural Systems Utilities Selected for Union Point Water Reuse Project
Natural Systems Utilities (NSU) has been selected by LStar Ventures to provide a two million gallon per day (GPD) onsite water treatment and recycling facility to serve the Union Point development just south of Boston. The project will be delivered through a progressive design-build-operate approach for a seamless transition between delivery phases, improved schedule, project continuity, and total accountability. Union Point’s mission of environmental sensitivity, sustainable design, and integrated resource management will be on full display at this facility. According to NSU Vice President Bruce Douglas: “A water recycling facility, at this scale, is a model for meeting Massachusetts wastewater infrastructure needs in an environmentally sound, sustainable, and cost-effective manner.”
Union Point is a 1,500-acre mixed-use development located 12 miles from Boston. Union Point will comprise nearly 4,000 homes and apartments and 8 million square feet of commercial development opportunity perfectly balanced with more than 1,000 acres of green space and 50 miles of hiking/biking trails. The site is a transit-oriented development with direct pedestrian access to the South Weymouth Commuter Rail Station. Development is being led by LStar Ventures, with master planning and design by Elkus Manfredi Architects.
