The Wastewater Solutions project seeks to provide the Colchester Selectboard with alternatives of effectively address human wastewater pollution in the Inner Bay (289 properties) so as to maintain and improve water quality for both current and future land use and site conditions. Preferred solutions will be efficient, cost effective, and reliable.
The Colchester Selectboard tasked the Planning Commission in March 2019 with gathering public input, developing options for addressing longstanding wastewater issues, and reporting back to the Selectboard in September 2019.
Over the summer of 2019, the Planning Commission will hold a series of workshops to address wastewater pollution. Options that the Commission will evaluate include purchase and conservation of existing properties, sewer, community septic and doing nothing.
