Waterford receives maximum grant ($50,000) from State Climate Change Initiative.

The State Community Resilience Partnership program awarded the grant as a result of the work done by a group of volunteers known as PEER Waterford (Partnerships in Energy, Efficiency, and Resilience). $43,000 will go towards installing heat pumps in the Waterford Municipal Building to increase efficiency and provide cooling to the entire building, allowing it to serve as an all-season refuge site during extreme weather periods or events. The remaining $7,000 will go towards the establishment of a community garden at the Waterford World's Fairgrounds.

Grant for a new generator at the Waterford Municipal Building awarded.

The grant provides half of the cost ($36,450) of the generator with the other half having already been raised at the Town Meeting in March. The total cost of $72,900 includes the 60kw generator, an enclosure, site work, and electrical installation. The new generator will be replacing the existing 17kw generator, which is 25+ years old and has become less reliable. The existing generator is also unable to power the entire building and some of the outlets in the offices, emergency dispatch, kitchen, and apparatus bays are not powered. The new generator will be able to power the operations of the town office, EOC, dispatch center, radio communications, Fire/EMS, as well as heat, showers, and food preparation capabilities for the public shelter. It will also handle the new heat pumps to be installed.
This project was spearheaded by Sharon Murch, Waterford's Emergency Management Director, and Todd Sawyer, Selectman.
