Prospect to clean catch basins


PROSPECT — The town will start its annual catch basin cleaning Tuesday.

Mayor Robert Chatfield said catch basins in the areas of Cook Road, Straitsville Road, Salem Road and Plank Road will be cleaned from 7 to 3 p.m., depending on the weather. The work is expected to take about month.

The town cleans about one-third of the catch basins every year, Chatfield said. He warned residents that the trucks doing the work make a sound similar to the town’s fire siren when they are cleaning the catch basins.
