Something strange in the sewers

Anyone know what’s going into the Perkins Corner Wastewater Treatment plant?

Twice in the last six months, something put into the sewer has killed biological life in the plant, said Chris Thomas, who directs the Public Service Authority. His agency has pinpointed a few “potential hotspots,” he said.

“We’ll talk to the owners and get an idea of what they’re using and if they’re putting something in the sewer they shouldn’t be,” he added.
