Securing the Town's Water Future
Taking a proactive approach to the Town's water concerns is the most efficient way to protect the community's water future.
In the late 1990s, groundwater levels in our area declined an average of 30 feet per year. Today, that average has dropped to about 5 feet per year. Thanks to excellent foresight, and the knowledge that a long-term sustainable water supply should be a priority, the Town is well on its way to the 75% renewable water goal thereby protecting and maximizing the benefits of our existing groundwater system.
