Ossipee selectmen refuse to sick dogs on homeowners with septic woes

Logan, a collie mix from Michigan, detects the scent of human waste along areas of the beach at Fort Foster as part of a week-long effort by Environmental Canine Services to detect human sources of bacteria in area waterways in 2012. (COURTESY)

OSSIPEE – Though it's been suggested at least twice, selectmen here have no intention of bringing in the dogs to sniff out septic problems.
Last year selectmen were told about a new service that exists that has specially trained dogs help locate potential sources of water pollution. This week Ossipee selectmen received a copy of a newspaper article about somewhere in New Jersey using this service.
