The town has named its water-filtration plant after longtime public official Eugene F. Guilbault, who died last year. Officials held a dedication ceremony in late June, unveiling a sign on the side of the plant and a bronze plaque at the building’s entrance. Guilbault was a member of Avon’s Conservation Commission for 46 years, the Water Commission for 25 years, and was a 21-year member of the Avon Fire Department. He was a US Navy submarine veteran of World War II and Korea. The Frank M. Noyes VFW Post 8892 provided a color guard at the dedication, and an American flag was raised on a newly installed flagpole. The water plant on Memorial Drive opened in 2008 and handles approximately 400,000 gallons a day, according to Town Administrator Michael McCue.
