Just a little problem that is now costing the city alot of money. A broken manhole "in" the Nashua River behind Midtown Beef on Water Street is allowing 12-15 million gallons of water a DAY to be routed to the Waste water treatment plant.

There will be fines given out. There is an actual owner of the manhole but the owner cannot be found or located. This manhole which connects to sewer piping can be seen as a raised brick structure in the middle of the river that resembles a smokestack.

The waste water treatment has been treating the water and noticed the sudden increase in gallons of water entering the plant. Not sure how much EXTRA cost in treatment chemicals has already been used for this.

So far they do not have any idea on how to fix the broken manhole that is actually under the river. They have excavated a large pile soil but could not gain access to the broken section.

This can be seen at the traffic lights at the Laurel Street and Water Street intersection.

Again this is priviledged information for all of you nosey topix people and not for the general public,shhhhhhhh.

Not everything has to be reported and printed in the paper.

We have a suspicion it's owned by a cop hiding behind his badge. Or possibly the Sentinel and that's why they are trying to cover it up.

I think this might just be someone trying to bait our local self appointed investigator. There are certain words used like man hole or spanish boy that we already know he'd like to get into.
