— More than 100 people in Franklin County will have to find a new home in two months.

The residents of the Pines Mobile Home Park No. 2 off Route 1 have an old wastewater treatment system. The park's owner says she cannot afford to fix it, so the park will close June 1.

"Somehow, somebody should be able to help these people move," says mobile home resident Therlin Kearney.

Schools, hotels, and other mobile home parks across the state have small, outdated wastewater treatment systems.
