“Hey, I just wanted to share a picture from North Street, New Bedford next to ‘SoCo Cycle.’ I’m from out of town. but work all over the state and was working a job in the city.

We have to pop these covers up in our line of work. By far, New Bedford has the worst catch basins I’ve seen in years of opening manholes. Something to mention, environmental issues are a problem everywhere but New Bedford is a major area of inlet/outlet. This is disgusting for the [DPW] ‘works’ and city to not tackle!

I rarely reach out to local agencies, but this was just a telltale sign that indicates the condition of the other open drop basins. Please keep me anonymous.”
