Duxbury: Finance Committee Voted Unanimously to Fund Replacing Water Pipes

Duxbury’s Finance Committee voted 8-0 at Thursday night’s meeting for new funding to replace water pipes in town that contain chemicals known to cause cancer.

VLAC or vinyl lined cement pipes were banned years ago and were supposed to be replaced after tax payers passed the article back at the 1997 town meeting.

Duxbury’s Safe Water Committee member Becky Chin says the town reduced the budget for the project.

Chin says funding for the project will not affect Duxbury’s water rates.

Funding for the replacement of the VLAC pipes will be an article on this year’s warrant at Duxbury’s Town Meeting in March.
