Lisbon worried about wells along Ammonoosuc River

The Lisbon Town Hall is shown on Wednesday overlooking the Ammonoosuc River. The town has two wells along the river, which the Lisbon Conservation Commission fears could be contaminated.

LISBON — The Conservation Commission recently raised questions about possible contamination of municipal wells in case of a liner break at a proposed landfill in Dalton.

Casella Waste Management of Rutland, Vt., which owns and operates a landfill in Bethlehem, says that landfill is running out of room, so it wants to build a new one in nearby Dalton.
