May 19, 2022 North Windham Sewer Public Meeting

Join us at a PUBLIC MEETING, on Thursday, May 19, 2022, at 6:30 PM at the Windham High School Auditorium, to learn more about the June 14, 2022 Referendum question regarding the North Windham Sewer Project.   

Why is the Town in partnership with the Portland Water District proposing this solution?  Where will the proposed system be installed?  How will wastewater be treated and phosphorus and nitrogen reduced?  What is the project cost and what funding resources has the Town been awarded?

We hope you can join us to learn more.
