Smoke test

The water and wastewater department can provide assistance in locating the source of the smoke entering a house, however any repairs in pipes and sewers needed on private property will be the responsibility of the resident.

“These investments in energy, water and waste water facilities have been truely tightening things down and we're seeing cost savings down the road by making these repairs to our water systems.”

“We're not arguing we should increase the cost for homeowners or the cost of the businesses for utility service, but if water is being unnecessarily treated thats costing the county money and that directly affects taxes down the road for residents and businesses,” Bassett said.

Bassett said the town has been lucky to have been able to control the utility costs to this point but in order to maintain town budgets it is the responsibility of the town to see where money, resources and possibly 1,000’s of gallons of water are being used unnecessarily.
