The federal Works Progress Administration (W.P.A.) furnished the cost of labor for the cleaning of the two reservoirs for the Town of Hatfield: the Mountain Street and Running Gutter Reservoirs.
Town Report: “With the help of WPA funds, we have done some work at the [Mountain Street] reservoir this summer. The small [Running Gutter] reservoir can be cleaned in one day, with two men; while it took fifteen men there for two weeks.”
