Water use was an important consideration in the design and approval of the new high school/middle school. The property has a well on-site and the school district will be installing a non-potable irrigation system using the well water to irrigate the ball fields and other landscaped areas. The well water that will be used for outdoor irrigation is not part of the Town’s water system, thus significantly reducing the impacts to the Town’s water supply and distribution systems. The new school will be utilizing Town water supplies for indoor use, and the school district will be paying the applicable Town water rates for usage. Although a school is a significant water customer of the Town, the hours that water is used at a school is offset from the high demand hours of residential uses. Since the hours of highest demand are offset, the Town’s ability to treat water to meet the demand is minimally impacted.
