Randolph getting $7.6 million for wastewater plantThe Associated Press | April 24,2013RANDOLPH — The town is getting $7.6 million for a new wastewater treatment plant.
Construction on the plant is to begin in August or September.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Development program announced the town was getting the money.
The town’s current plant is 40 years old and outdated. Plans for a new one have been in the works for several years.

He said states like Connecticut, New York and Massachusetts have been meeting stricter nutrient levels for a while and the effort has worked its way up the Connecticut River basin.MORE IN Vermont NewsCOLCHESTER — A bunch of kids in a minivan are solving twin challenges in northern Vermont:...
