Open Sewer

On the 4th of May I was walking from here to the post office to either return a Netflix dvd or mail an important document. On the way I saw a familiar figure to my left waving to me- I waved and we chatted for a bit. He was waiting for the MassDOT surveyor to show up by 10am. We all know what that means- show up early and wait for a late arrival. It was cloudy overcast windy cold damp day. But Scott is a lively talker and easy to converse with him. But I did have to get my mail mailed. The story was he was called by the police that someone reported an open sewer on Conservation property. I pass by that area twice a week and no open sewers to my eyes. I would check it out. I spy it and it is just a dry well probably for run off from the property above. The road below that , rt 28, used to flood along there during heavy rain storms. oh well. I mail my mail and head back after taking two pix. one of the  "sewer" the other of a grate which I thought would be the complaint- those are sometimes upended. So I see Scott still waiting we chat some more. The surveyor shows up and the three of us go over to the "sewer". Lots of talk about the State being slow moving but they will check it out and let him , Scott, know who is responsible etc.

I just wonder why the police called Scott and not the Board of Health. And who was reporting something so ridiculous! Not dangerous and not smelly- nothing. And the police- why not place an orange traffic cone or something. Or hazard tape.
the 4th



next trip the 7th of May


May 10th
orange streamers show up LOL



I will not tire of this until it is "fixed" supposedly filled in.

I think a statue to Bureaucracy would be nice.

May 11th




argh  my camera yesterday kept telling me to set battery type and the date was reset to who knows what I managed to change it to 2016 at least. All settings hidden. But I do like the camera!

May 14th had to walk my dvd Endeaver- new Inspector Morse to the post office- checked out the sewer again before getting ready to meet up with Don  & Muriel.




 I was a bit stymied with updates on this exciting spot. LOL Firefox crashed and along with it my link to my edit page here. What a pain!
