Sewer problem halts Brandon health center
BRANDON — The Neshobe Family Practice medical building on the site of the former Brandon Training School had to shut down last week after a sewer problem followed by a water problem.
Brandon Town Manager Keith Arlund said he was alerted on March 10 that a lateral sewer line to the building adjacent to the Rutland Northeast Supervisory Union offices was compromised after a clean-out box came apart.
When public works crews were working to fix the sewer line, they discovered a leaking water main, Arlund said.
As of last Friday, the sewer issued had been fixed and water crews were working to replace the broken water pipe. By Saturday, the huge hole that had been dug to address the issues was completely filled in.
Neshobe Family Practice was open for business on Monday.
