WOONSOCKET â€” The heavy lifting has been completed and the Synagro sludge incineration operation off Cumberland Hill Road is well on its way to generating its own electrical power.
The company completed the lowering of a massive waste-heat boiler inside the incinerator building on Friday and will now begin the work of connecting the new equipment to existing machinery and electrical services.
BURRILLVILLE â€“ Marine Cpl. Kevin Dubois, a wounded warrior who lost both legs in Afghanistan, will soon be calling Burrillville home.
