Formed in 2019 by Mike Geis and Chris Williams, we're a group of local residents who love West Acton. We wanted to learn more about the sewer proposal, so we reached out to scientists, wastewater professionals, the Natural Resources Conservation Service, the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection and the Acton Health Department to get a better understanding of the issues. We've researched everything from financial cost to environmental concerns. Please join our mailing list to stay informed of meetings and announcements. Also please let us know if anything on the site isn't working, and we'll fix it promptly. We hope you find this site interesting and informative!
