Fair Haven votes to investigate hydro potential

On Town Meeting Day, voters in Fair Haven will decide whether or not to spend up to $5,000 on an independent study to determine the cost of installing hydro-electricity at the town’s water treatment plant. A resident of the town secured the required number of signatures to get the article on the ballot. Voters passed a different hydro project that appeared on Fair Haven’s ballot a couple of years ago, but that plan was ultimately ruled unfeasible by the Select Board. The new proposal, which would use water from Inman Pond, is estimated to be a 10-kilowatt project. Supporters say it would save Fair Haven thousands of dollars each year.

Article 14: Shall the Town of Fair Haven appropriate up to $5000 for an independent study of costs related to installing hydro electricity in Fair Haven? (by petition)
