From the Water Department: Please Clean Up Pet Waste

contribute's picture

The town municipal well fields offer a number of great walking trails at Fruit Street and Charles McIntyre Lane, off Lake Whitewall. However we have noticed an increase in the amount of pet waste that is being left behind in the direct recharge area of the wells. This waste poses a potential risk of contamination of the water supply. We ask that anyone who is walking their dog in the vicinity of the wells, to please pick up after their pet to ensure the safety of our drinking water supply.

We thank you for your cooperation in this important matter.
