Calais News & Updates

  • The water of Curtis Pond and #10 Pond were tested for E. coli last week, and they both tested negative, meaning the waters are safe. Happy swimming!
  • If your property was subject to any damage during the most recent storms, report it immediately to Vermont 211 at https://vermont211.org/resident-form. In order for Vermont to qualify for FEMA reimbursement, Washington County must report a sufficient damage total, and that total has not yet been met. Even if you plan to repair the damages on your own without requesting aid, please report your damages.

You may also order your free test kit onlineIf you can't order online, call 802-338-4724 or 800-660-9997 (toll-free in Vermont) or contact your local health office.
