There is an existing failed septic system on site. The lot consists of 56,175 s.f. of land area of which wetlands encompass a majority of the site. The property had two perc tests done, one in the front yard and one in the back. Both perc tests failed moving less than 1” in two hours. Most of the back yard is either wetlands or within the 100’ buffer to wetlands. The solution is either a tight tank or a sewer connection. A sewer stub is available in front of the house on the sewer line that serves the Hatherly School. The property was pumped in October and at the time of inspection. An elderly couple in there eighties resides there and they are getting the house affairs in order in anticipation of a lifestyle change. He will state that when family has come over for a visit, the system has bubbled over in the past. This house is in an area where several other homes have already been connected to the sewer via emergency connections.
Engineer must submit photographs, water records and be prepared to talk about any overflow(s) with the Board of Selectmen. Speak with DPW Engineering prior to meeting with the Board of Selectmen to assure a sewer connection can be made to this property. Prepare the homeowners for their meeting with the Board of Selectmen to speak about the water usage and occasional back-ups.
Motion by Frank Lynch to approve emergency sewer connection with the above conditions, seconded and approved unanimously.
Motion by Frank Lynch to adjourn meeting at 8:00 p.m., seconded and approved unanimously.
