Septics failing in Bellingham

BELLINGHAM

Some residents who live near Pulaski Boulvevard and Wrentham Street in Bellingham are in dire need of sewer service and are seeking to connect to the town's system immediately, Town Admininstrator Denis Fraine told selectmen at a recent meeting.

Selectmen exprssed concern that it's unusual to let people hook up before a sewer project is completely done. Fraine said some septic systems are failing in the area of about 60 homes that are slated to tap into the public system.

Selectmen asked Fraine to research the issue to determine if any residents could be assessed a betterment and connected to the system before the project is finished.
