'Our Infrastructure' Issues:
- Water Supply System – The island’s drinking water supply has limits and the Town is taking steps to ensure it meets current and future demands. Public engagement and cooperation is critical.
- Roads and Bridges – The town’s major roadways and bridges are vulnerable to sea level rise and storm surge during severe storm events. Being proactive with in improvements to accommodate impacts can help the town be prepared.
- Wastewater Disposal – Sewers are only provided to the village center.
- Stormwater Management – Stormwater management strategies have multiple benefits, including reducing runoff that may contain pollutants entering waterways, storing flood waters, and reducing erosion and sedimentation. Strategies that focus on “greener” approaches use natural systems that can also improve aesthetics and provide habitat for wildlife.
