The Select Board has contracted with Public Water Systems Services/Scott McGlynn to provide the following services:

  • PWSS will again be conducting water quality tests at the town’s three outfalls on the Salmon Falls River, an impaired waterway:  one set of tests will be done in the spring and one set in the fall.
  • PWSS will be installing check dams in Stockdale Circle in the deep gully that flows into Partridge Lane.   PWSS will check with homeowners prior to installing the check dams if S. McGlynn needs to cross onto owners’ properties.   The check dams are not permanent installations and will be providing the town with diagnostic feedback regarding the causes of the erosion and silt depositions that happen at the outfall across from the American Legion.

We anticipate that these services, except for the fall testing, will occur in the first two weeks of May.
