Popular Ptown bar shut down after sewerage leak discovered
PROVINCETOWN
- The popular Atlantic House Bar in Provincetown was closed down by the town early last week after a sewerage problem was detected. The club was in the process of installing a sprinkler system as required by laws enacted after the RI club fire when a town water employee discovered the problem. Provincetown installed its sewer system in 2003 but the Atlantic House was among those properties given a temporary waiver or "red dot" because they had already invested in costly so called "Title V" systems. The town says the club will be closed until they hook up to the system. Club owners have not said how long they expect that to be but a sign on the window says the club is closed for the holiday weekend for renovations.
