Moonshine Still Discovered In Mass. Water Plant (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

GROTON, Mass. -- A more intoxicating drink than water was apparently being produced at a Massachusetts town's water treatment plant.

A town official in Groton (GRAH'-tuhn) says a water department employee set up a still and was making moonshine on town property.

Town Manager Mark Haddad tells The Sun of Lowell was discovered earlier this month inside the Baddacook Water Treatment Plant. The employee was placed on paid administrative leave and later decided to retire.

Haddad did not disclose the former worker's name. He says the distilling equipment has been confiscated by police.

Police would not say whether they are investigating.

Selectman Peter Cunningham says the still was simply someone's "hobby," and there is no evidence the employee was drinking on the job.
