As voters head to Town Meetings on Tuesday one of the major issues in the North Country will be infrastructure repairs. That’s an issue Kevin McKinnon, who runs Colebrook’s water department, knows all too well...
A few years ago McKinnon was looking at a hydrant that had recently been removed from Main Street.
He was chipping through decades of paint to get to a part when a date began to emerge: 1884.
“I was a little shocked.”
It was a clear reminder that Colebrook’s system was installed around 1880.
