The debris is located in Whetstone Brook around and under the Main Street Bridge. This portion of Whetstone Brook is not accessible and is constrained by buildings and the road. The metal is large and the debris looks to be relative large.

Are boats or special equipment needed for cleanup? If so, explain

Yes, I think you will need DPW to assist with this site and it should only be done in low water. I do not know the best way to access the brook, but likely above the Main Street Bridge

Is this site suitable for children under 12?

No, adults only
