Dreaming of new pipes in Upton

Posted by Ralph Ranalli November 17, 2007 08:59 AM


Representatives from various departments last week agreed that the town should prioritize the replacement of water pipes on Main Street.

Town Meeting voters Dec. 3 will decide whether to spend roughly $80,000 on an engineering study for the new pipes. Marsha Paul, chairwoman of the Board of Selectmen, said the town sorely needs to update its infrastructure.

"These same issues were discussed 10 years ago," she said. "What we need to do is start to chip away at some of these needs."
