Emergency Preamble

Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to authorize forthwith the grant of an easement to the town of Bourne to allow the town to connect an effluent pipe to an existing wastewater treatment system on the Upper Cape Water Supply Reserve, therefore it is hereby declared to be an emergency law, necessary for the immediate preservation of the public convenience.
