Watershed purchase mulled in Medfield

Posted by Ralph Ranalli December 10, 2007 10:39 AM


The state has announced a $500,000 grant to help Medfield purchase about 36 acres of watershed land near the intersection of North and School streets.

The land protects a well site, currently unused, at the former Medfield State Hospital. Town Administrator Michael Sullivan said the total price of the land would be about $3 million, meaning town meeting voters would have to approve about $2.5 million to acquire the land.
