Weston Water Tanks: Part 3 of 3 on April 25 (Finances)
Join the Select Board for its third meeting on the proposed water tanks on April 25 at 7 pm. This time the focus is on the finances and mathy stuff. I don’t mean to steal the thunder but summarizing here: water tanks cost a craptastic amount. Yes, that is an adjective. Unfortunately, Weston has not been historically good at putting aside funds for a non-rainy day, so this is going to hurt. It is. Here are the marketing materials:
After Weston’s water tanks nearly ran dry during the drought of 2016, Town management became aware that a review of its water infrastructure was in order. Voters at Town Meeting in May, 2018 authorized funding for an independent and comprehensive review of the Town’s water system. This review, a Water Master Plan, was presented to the Town by Wright-Pierce, Engineers, in the spring of 2019. The Water Master Plan analyzed our existing water system and infrastructure (including pipes, pump stations, tanks, and water source), and made recommendations to ensure that the infrastructure and system could supply adequate water to the Town for the next 20 years and beyond. The Water Master Plan can be read in its entirety here.
We encourage Weston Residents to attend this meeting. The Meeting information on how to join will be posted on our Calendar or you can click the link below.
