Town officials expect to learn next month whether the state Department of Environmental Protection will help fund repairs to ailing Hospital Brook.
The town is hoping to reconstruct the walls that create a channel for the brook, which runs behind the Milford Regional Medical Center. The walls are currently crumbling badly, according to Town Planner Larry Dunkin said.
Milford officials have applied for a grant from DEP that would cover 60 percent of the $500,000 repair project, Dunkin said. Town Meeting voters would have to approve paying the remaining 40 percent of the costs, he said.
Two other waterways in town, Godfrey Brook and and O'Brien Brook, are in a similar state, and officials are hoping to repair them in coming
years, according to Dunkin.
