A Northfield resident who had a sewage line leak into her basement at the beginning of January will soon see relief. 

City officials said Friday that a refuse container is expected Monday from a remediation company. It will pick up the pile of contaminated furniture and personal items that have been sitting outside Barbara Monahan’s home ever since the incident.

Her home on Fuae Avenue was the only one that received a flow of sewage, about 7 inches, into the basement on Jan. 5. The remediation company spent 15 hours cleaning up the mess.

Since then, the pile of her former belongings has been sitting outside her home with a sign that says,”Don’t touch. Contaminated.”
