Environmental Concerns

Enfield Neighbors for Safe Air and Water

Enfield Neighbors for Safe Air and Water (ENSAW) connects and informs the Enfield community about issues affecting the safety and preservation of our local natural resources and environment. ENSAW members have successfully petitioned for and pursued a one-year moratorium and the current town ban in Enfield on hydrofracturing, a controversial method of gas drilling. Other important goals have included securing a commitment from the Town Board to conduct an aquifer study to better understand our water resources and completion of an updated Comprehensive Plan.

ENSAW members meet frequently to plan events and develop tools and resources to be used by our town officials as well as residents and community members.  ENSAW members work in many capacities to benefit the Town of Enfield. If you’re interested in being a part of a strong and committed organization of Enfield residents with a history of success in preserving our rural character and natural beauty, please visit our Contact page or email us at ensaw.info@gmail.com

Following the training, volunteers will help other community members reduce their energy use and energy bills, and enjoy safer and more comfortable homes.
