DERBY LINE â€“ Raw village sewage has flowed into a Derby Line home on Caswell Avenue on at least two occasions within about a weekâ€™s time.
The homeowner was present for the village trusteeâ€™s regular meeting Tuesday evening. She had a bill from a local plumber and is expecting another bill.
She said when her basement filled up with sewage she didnâ€™t know where it was coming from, so she called the plumber. The next time the plumber showed up, he suggested she call the village.
