Town Well Testing

Town Wells: As a precaution in early December 2018 the Selectboard had the water wells serving the Town Hall, Grafton Library and Town Highway Garage tested for PFAs and PFOAs by Verterre. All three wells tested “No Detections.”    See this report: J46497-1 UDS Level 2 Report Final Report  in particular page 5.

Dept of Environmental Conservation Representative August 15, in relevant part:

“I was able to visit the school earlier this week and work with our contractor to develop a preliminary investigation work plan. We plan on sampling a couple of the closest private wells to get some more data from deep groundwater and we will be focusing our testing on the shallow soil and groundwater near the school’s septic system and leachfield. The data that we get from this preliminary investigation will inform the need to sample elsewhere. We will not be sampling other wells in the town unless the data shows a reason to do so. It will be a few weeks before we can evaluate this next set of data.”

The Dept. of Environment Conservation Contractor, Verterre, which is doing the testing at the school, filed its initial report date Oct 22, 2018. As it now exists, the report is too large to post on this site. Contact Bill Kearns at or 843 2552 and he will send it to you digitally, or you can come into Town Hall and read it. This si the meat of the report.
