All hamlet residents rely heavily upon groundwater wells for our drinking water. Recently, questions have arisen about the adequacy of water supplies in the Ancram hamlet. To address this, the Town has initiated an effort to learn more about our groundwater supplies. As an additional step in finding answers to these important questions, we need vital information on our groundwater resources; the quality and quantity of our water, our water-use, and the nature of water supply issues in our hamlet. You can help by supplying parcel level information. To build on the original 2008 Groundwater Protection Plan for the Town of Ancram, this survey has been put together as a “closer look” at groundwater resources in the Hamlet of Ancram. This survey will help identify further studies or evaluations that may be needed.

Your assistance in gathering this information and aiding the effort to protect our wells would be greatly appreciated. Our hope is that you will spend a few minutes and complete the following water well survey. All collected data will be strictly confidential and used to identify the number and types of problems that residents encounter.  This survey results will remain anonymous - Only statistical data will be reported.
