The Hamilton Town Council voted last week to direct Triad Engineering to remove data logging probes at residential wells near the town’s Well 14.
The monitoring was required by the county government because of concerns that operation of the municipal well would reduce groundwater supplies to homes in the area. The monitors were installed in 2009. According to the town, no adverse impacts on nearby wells was detected during the course of the program.
Work to dismantle the monitoring system and return the probes to the town will cost $3,200.
