The Newburyport side of Plum Island has been experiencing significant sewer and water problems this winter. The sewer system is a vacuum system and homes have an outside ‘candy cane’ shaped vent. The unpredecented snow fall this winter, combined with the number of vacation homes, has meant many of these vents remain covered by feet of snow.
Plum Island is calling for volunteers to help with shoveling out many of these buried vents. Anyone interested in assisting, please meet at the Plum Island Taxpayers Association (PITA) Hall, located at 8 Plum Island Turnpike, Newbury, today at 10am.
