Something stinks in Chelsea

Residents mulls suit over sewage smell


Residents living to the south of the Chelsea sewage treatment plant are getting tired of pinching their noses and holding their tongues.


Chemin du Ravin couple, Jacques and Cindy Patenaude, say they have been dealing with the smell emanating from Chelsea’s wastewater and potable water treatment plant for years, which has made their home nearly unlivable and made them fear for their health and property value.
