Sewer Fairness Alliance of Chelmsford
SEWER FAIRNESS ALLIANCE of CHELMSFORD ORGANIZES
Meeting Thursday, 29 November 2012 at the Chelmsford Public Library at 7 p.m
All of Chelmsford is now connected to the sewer system. Most of the town is served by a gravity system, augmented by town-owned, town-operated, and town-maintained pumping stations. When these pumping stations fail, the Town of Chelmsford fixes them at no cost to the residents.
There are, however, a significant number of homeowners who were forced by the town to install and operate grinder pumps, which are really mini-pumping stations, at their own expense. When these grinder pumps fail, the homeowners must repair them, again at their own expense.
A group of Chelmsford residents, driven by the inequity of this system, have come together to form the Sewer Fairness Alliance of Chelmsford. The alliance seeks, by petitioning the Town Meeting Representatives and town government directly, to rectify the inequity by assuming responsibility for maintaining the grinder pumps we were forced to install at our own expense.
Two organizational meetings have been held. A third meeting is scheduled for Thursday, 29 November 2012 at the Chelmsford Public Library at 7 p.m.
We invite all Chelmsford residents who are concerned about the cost of repairing grinder pumps, and who want equal treatment with other town residents when there is a malfunction in the sewer system to our meeting on November 29th. Those of you who have already experienced grinder pump malfunctions are particularly encouraged to attend, and share your insights with us.
If you have a friend or neighbor who has a grinder pump and is not aware of the meeting please let them know.
