Sewage spills into Assabet River

The Maynard waste water treatment plant had a pumping station failure on Sunday, April 13, spilling one million gallons of raw sewage into the Assabet River. The Assabet flows into the Concord River, which borders Carlisle. Massachusetts DEP spokesman Ed Coletta said on Wednesday that there was now no public health danger for either river, in part due to the high water levels and increased flow rates. It takes about one day for water to flow from Maynard, past Carlisle to Billerica. Billerica withdraws water from the Concord River for drinking, and Coletta said Billerica has noticed bacteria counts are slightly elevated, but still within accepted levels.
