Other Considerations

 

Improved fire protection & homeowners insurance rates Improved appliance and plumbing component life No more noisy well pump and bad bladder tanks Fill a 24’ diameter pool for about $9 instead of $600 Take a shower & flush toilets during power outages Safe, regulated, tested and good tasting water supply Investment in our community All for about the cost of:

6 gal. per week

3 bottles per day

Survey Comments/Questions

 
  


  

We pay too much in taxes. Our taxes will go up. You are forcing this on us. We will still have to pay to hook up. We still have to pay for water. Seasonal homes should pay less. Town shouldn’t work/meet on the project off-season. I don’t want it. I shouldn’t have to pay. Town should get a grant to reduce costs. Our shared wells don’t need to be regulated.
