Brookfield Water Pollution Control Authority

The Brookfield Water Pollution Control Authority is currently comprised of seven members. Commission members are appointed by the Board of Selectman, usually at the recommendation of a Vacancy Committee.  It is the Democrat or Republican Vacancy Committees that conduct interviews and background checks of potential board members.

The WPCA Commissioners are appointed for four year terms. Their terms can be renewed. Each year, the board selects the Chairman and Vice Chairman, by a simple majority vote. Besides being interested in quality governance, each board member must be a resident of Brookfield to be eligible to serve.

The current board is comprised of the following volunteer members:
