STURBRIDGE — Residents of Farquhar Road hope that excessive flooding on their properties is a thing of the past.

A recent project led by DPW Director Greg Morse is expected to keep basements and garages dry from now on.

Crews spent about 11 days installing a new drainpipe farther away from houses on Farquhar Road. The project was expected to cost around $8,200, and it included a week of work on the pipe itself and another four days of cleanup.

Even though there are still a few minor tasks to be completed, residents have noticed a significant improvement. Torrential rains on Wednesday, Dec. 7 provided the first major test for the new pipe, and it passed with flying colors.
