Another week, another mudslide.

A weekend rainstorm caused dirt and silt to slide down a hill in Boxford at a pipeline construction site - the second mudslide within the last two weeks - closing roads and leaving town officials counting the days until Maritimes and Northeast Pipeline, L.L.C. "gets the hell out of town," in the words of one irate selectman.

Meanwhile, a federal inspector is in Boxford this week to investigate the pipeline after dirt and silt washed from a different work site into a nearby wetland.
