Wastewater treatment plant in Hull floods

HULL — Flooding at the wastewater treatment plant here forced officials to close local schools on Thursday, bring in emergency pumps, and send raw sewage into the Atlantic Ocean, state and town officials said.

Town Manager Philip E. Lemnios said operators reported at about 1 a.m. that an abnormally high volume of sewage water was coming into the basement, which has a 20-foot well to handle flooding.
