COMMUNITY SEWERAGE SYSTEMS
Community sewerage systems (as defined in Section 7-245 of the Connecticut General Statutes) shall not be used as a device to extend sewer service for new construction beyond the limits of the existing sewer districts. Unless necessary to abate or mitigate an existing or imminent pollution problem, no community sewerage system involving package treatment plants, subsurface septic systems or subsurface leaching systems shall be permitted in the Town of Brookfield.
It is recognized that several historical existing, privately owned community sewerage systems having subsurface septic systems or subsurface leaching systems currently exist. These include High Meadow Condominiums, Ledgewood Condominiums and Newbury Crossing Condominiums, Lake Lillinoah Condominiums, Brookfield Hills Condominiums, Woodcreek Village Condominiums and Orchard Place Condominiums. None of these community sewerage systems were approved by the Brookfield Water Pollution Control Authority and none are subject to a management agreement with the WPCA to ensure effective operation, management, maintenance or replacement.
High Meadow Condominiums, Ledgewood Condominiums and Newbury Crossing Condominiums are located in the High Meadow / Ledgewood/ Newbury Crossing Sewer Area. Although sewer service will be provided to these condominiums once the current construction project is completed to allow discontinuance of portions of their community sewerage systems, each condominium will continue to maintain a community sewerage system consisting of gravity sewers as necessary to convey condominium sewage to the municipal system.
Other privately owned community sewerage systems that are presently connected to the municipal sewer system serve Cedarbrook Condominiums, Sandy Lane Village Condominiums, Stony Hill Village Condominiums, Whisconier Village Condominiums, Rollingwood Village Condominiums and Newbury Village Condominiums.
The Authority has approved privately owned community sewerage systems at the proposed Riverview Affordable Housing Condominiums and at Oak Meadow Affordable Housing Condominiums.
The properties that are served by community sewerage systems are indicated as follows on the aforesaid Sewer Service Area map:
