Peabody is a city located in the North Shore region of Massachusetts and only 20 miles north of Boston. In the 2014 census, Peabody was estimated to have a population of 52,376 and continue to raise every year. Peabody was originally known as the Northfields when it was settled within Salem in 1626 but later established itself as a city in 1855. Peabody receives its water supply from the reservoirs along the Ipswich River WaterShed and North Coastal Basin. Wells used to be the main source of water supply for the city but was closed after it was found to be contaminated. Mass DEP classified Peabody’s water supply along the Ipswich River as susceptible to contamination and labeled it as “moderate to high.” While it is the responsibility of the city’s water department to maintain the water quality, they have little control over whether contaminants enters the water supply through pipes or the soil.
