County in Book # 432, Page # 98. This lot is 100 +/- acres in size, and was once
part of the Little River Watershed Protection Area. Little River was once part
of Belfast’s water supply but has not been used since 1980 and never will be
used as a water source for Belfast.

protection of the Goose River Aquifer and the two wells, Jackson Pit Well and
Smart Road Well, it surrounds. These two wells have been Belfast’s sole water
source since 1980. Therefore, the District feels the rate payers of Belfast
would be better served by selling the Durham lot and using the proceeds to help
protect its present and future water source.
