Barnstable Officials Discuss Potential New Well Sites

BARNSTABLE – The Barnstable Town Council met last month to discuss the town’s continuing work with state and county officials regarding potential water supply wells proposed on the 250 acre parcel northeast of the Hyannis Water System.

The property has been identified as one of several viable sites in close proximity to the Hyannis Water System to install new wells to provide water for the surrounding area.

Barnstable Town Manager Mark Ells has met with Barnstable County Commissioner Leo Cakounes regarding the status on the Barnstable County Fire Training Academy, which has been blamed for contaminating the system’s current wells. 

Ells told the council that town and county representatives have agreed to continue discussions until a unified position is reached regarding all matters concerning the facility. 

The immediate concern is regarding water usage in fire response exercises on site. Discussion are now taking place between the County and Joint Base Cape Cod officials on the potential for locating a new FTA facility on Joint Base Cape Cod.
