Question 1 Passed!
Important measure for the health of the Popponesset Bay passed yesterday in the town election
Yesterday, in a resounding 75% vote of approval, the citizens of Mashpee approved a debt override of $2.4 million that will fund the planning process for a wastewater treatment plant on the northeast side of town. This plant will remove significant amounts of the nitrogen that is damaging the ecosystem and water quality in the Mashpee River and Popponesset Bay.
The vote came on the heels of a close vote at Town Meeting last week on the same measure. This is a significant step forward but just part of the journey to ensuring clean waters and a healthy town.
Special thanks to our supporters who vote in Mashpee!
