Capen Hill receives grant to replace septic system.
CHARLTON -- Capen Hill Nature Sanctuary, 56 Capen Road, has great news.
A grant promoting community development and tourism in central and western Massachusetts has been approved by the state, providing $27,800 toward the cost of a desperately needed new septic system.
Receiving this grant was possible because Sen. Steven Brewer's office called to let the sanctuary know of its availability. Longtime sanctuary Karen Spiewak also notified us about this grant opportunity.
Without a new septic system (the present one had failed) we no longer would have been able to keep the visitor center open for all to enjoy, free of charge. Eco-Pro Septic did an amazing job installing the system. Green Hill engineering donated the site plan.
Thanks so much for all who enabled us to receive this grant and to complete this project.
