Stockton voters reject continued sewer project research, funding

By Stephanie Grinnell | Jun 12, 2018

With a vote of 305 to 178, voters in Stockton Springs rejected "pursuit of funding and other resources for the purpose of constructing a Wastewater Treatment Facility."

The question was placed on the ballot by selectmen after completion of a wastewater feasibility study of a commercial zone along Route 1 projected costs of more than $4 million.

The study was narrowly approved at the 2017 annual town meeting, over objections from some residents that it was a repeated effort. Selectmen hoped availability of wastewater treatment might spark economic development.
