PRIVATE WELL WATER INFORMATION
The reservoir has been refilled to restricted elevation level of 9882.7, so any impacts to surrounding wells would not be a result of the construction project.
The Town and the Project Engineer have identified the homeowners most likely to experience a disruption of well water supply as a result of the drawdown, and they mailed letters, emailed, and called those homeowners about the water assistance plan that has been prepared.
There is a chance that other properties located within 350 feet of the reservoir may experience a disruption in their well water supply during the drawdown period. If you experience an issue, please contact the Town using the contact information provided on this website.
At this time, if residents would like to self-test the water quality of their well, resources for this testing can be found at:
