Hard work and collaboration go on across Town departments to move projects ahead and continue to meet the goals of our community. Take a moment to learn more about the efforts of Town staff, committee members and all of the dedicated work put in by Town supporters and the accomplishments to show for it.

2023-2024 Rock Harbor Maintenance Dredging Project

Background: Every ten years Rock Harbor is dredged to make sure the channel for boats is open for launching and docking. The town partners with the Town of Orleans to complete environmental permitting and engineering and splits the cost of the dredge costs evenly. The harbor was last dredged in the winter of 2014/2015, where approximately 25,000 cubic yards of sand was removed.

Next Steps: As of spring 2022, the sand in the harbor is undergoing testing to ensure it is suitable for reuse and to permit the locations the sand can be placed when it is removed. Then permits will be obtained from local, state and federal environmental agencies.

Wastewater Planning

Wastewater planning efforts have been underway for several years. The town has explored many alternatives to traditional sewers, such as permeable reactive barriers and specialized septic systems, however certain areas of the town will need traditional sewer infrastructure in the future.  

Please visit the Health Department webpage for more information on their various initiatives.
