LETTERS FROM THE PEOPLE. A Question of Sewers. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Tribune — 28 May 1887
LETTERS FROM THE PEOPLE. A Question of Sewers. Editor Cambridge Tbjbcbb: In view of the propoeed building by tbe efty of a sewer from Waterbouae atreet to tbe river at the foot of Bath atreet, In order to make a aeo &gt;nd outlet for tbe main aewers which come from North avenue and Garden street, and unite at Waterbouae, an earn* eat effort Is making by citizens of Old Cambridge to induce the city government to provide for the discharge of this aewage at a point lower down the river.
