NORTHBOROUGH – The historic marker detailing the construction of the Wachusett Aqueduct in Northborough is missing.
A Northborough resident first noticed that the marker was missing on Oct. 7. After waiting for confirmation from the Department of Public Works that it had not been taken down for maintenance, a report was filed with the Northborough Police Department Oct. 9.
According to Chief Bill Lyver, the case was assigned for investigation. As of Oct. 12, Lyver reported that there wasn’t any new information.
The sign was paid for with Community Preservation Act funds. It was installed in 2013 and had been located along the Hudson Street sidewalk near the bridge.
If you know who may have taken the sign, please convince them to return in. No questions asked. The marker can be returned to the Department of Public Works in Town Hall.
