Sewer Overflow Reported On Perry Road; No Risk To Public Health, Safety

A sanitary sewer overflow was reported on Perry Road in Wollaston on Thursday.

The overflow was reported at 20 Perry Rd., according to an email sent by the city’s Department of Public Works on Friday afternoon. The overflow was listed as ongoing as of then, with about 50 gallons of sewage being released per day.

According to City Engineer Paul Costello, there was a very small sewer pipe leak that has been cleaned up and is being self-contained on Perry Street until the pipe can be permanently repaired in the near future.

“There is no risk to public health and safety,” Costello said.

According to the DPW website, “A sanitary sewer overflow (SSO) is an unintentional discharge, spill or release of untreated sewage into the environment or a property. SSOs are also known as sewer backups and the resulting flooding can cause damage to a property and pollute the environment. Raw sewage is dangerous because it contains bacteria and other hazardous microorganisms. Touching or walking through contaminated areas can bring germs into uncontaminated areas of your home. Children and pets are especially vulnerable.”

Frank P. Milano, 90

Frank Paul Milano, of Quincy, formerly of Dorchester, passed away on July 25, 2022, surrounded by his loving family.  Frank was 90 years old and lived life to the fullest.

Frank P. Milano

Born in Boston on Feb. 23, 1932, he was the son of the late Benny and Nancy (Falcetta) Milano. Frank grew up in Dorchester.  He was a devout Catholic and attended St. Ann’s Church, in Quincy, where he lived for 64 years with his wife, Anita and their family.

Frank served as a Corporal in the U.S. Army and was stationed in Korea, where he helped build roads and bridges.  After being discharged from the Army, he worked as a welder/machinist for American (Domino) Sugar co. for 25 years before retiring.  After that, he worked part-time for Corcoran Management.

Frank was an active member of North Quincy Council of the Knights of Columbus, where he volunteered his time to help establish and work Bingo for many years.  There, he met many of his lifetime friends.  He thoroughly enjoyed playing golf for the Knights of Columbus at The Furnace Brook Golf Club and attended many golf trips to Naples, Florida with the same group.  He especially enjoyed several trips and cruises to Bermuda and the Caribbean with family and friends.  Frank was an extremely avid ALL BOSTON sports fan, especially, the New England Patriots.  He volunteered his time as a welder to assist in building Schafer Stadium, consequently, getting his season tickets, which were on the 50-yard line.  He was one of the first season ticket holders starting in 1960 and followed them when they played at B.U. Field, Harvard University, Fenway Park and all the way to The Dynasty at Gillette Stadium.  He saw 11 Super bowls with the Pats in his lifetime and attended two of them.  Frank was also a “HOCKEY DAD”, when both his boys played for Quincy Youth Hockey and he attended many hockey trips to Canada and New York with them.  Again, in 1970, he volunteered his welding expertise to help build Quincy Youth Hockey Arena. Frank was a perfectionist and thought things should be done on schedule.  Often times, we let him think we did do things on schedule.

Frank is survived by his wife Anita (Tagliamonte) Milano. Devoted Father to Richard and his wife, Claudine Milano of Braintree, Jim and his wife, Patti Milano of Marshfield.  Grandfather to Christopher and his wife, Casey Milano of Quincy, Amanda Milano and her partner, Joey Rackauskis of Quincy, Matthew and Alexa Milano of Braintree and John and Victoria Milano of Marshfield.  Great grandfather to Brayden, Evan, Camdyn and his namesake, the newest addition to the family, Gianni Franceso Milano.  Also survived by his brother Vinny Milano of Mashpee, and sisters Agnes Lynch of Abington and Lena and her husband, George Cummings of Hingham as well as many nieces and nephews.

Evening Shuttle Buses to Replace Red Line Trains between JFK/UMass and Braintree Aug. 1-4 and Aug. 8-11

The MBTA announces that shuttle buses will replace evening Red Line Braintree branch service beginning at approximately 9 p.m. through the end of service from Mondays to Thursdays for two consecutive weeks, between Aug. 1–4 and Aug. 8–11.

“As the MBTA continues to work with the FTA on safety enhancements, the track and maintenance work to take place during these evening Red Line diversions will continue to allow the T to build a better and safer system for all of its riders and employees,” MBTA General Manager Steve Poftak said in a press release. “We know any diversions in service can be frustrating for riders, but these evening diversions allow us to address necessary track repairs and speed restrictions on the Braintree branch, which will lead to a faster trip for Red Line riders.”

The MBTA continues to prioritize safety enhancements and to address track work and maintenance associated with the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) directives. These evening shuttle bus diversions on the Red Line will allow work crews more access to the track to expedite this maintenance work as efficiently as possible. The upcoming Red Line project activities during these evening diversions includes tie replacement and track re-alignment work that, when completed, will allow the MBTA to remove speed restrictions along the Braintree branch, ultimately speeding up travel time for riders.

Free, accessible shuttle buses will make all stops between JFK/UMass and Braintree stations during these evening weekday diversions.
