NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that a Public Hearing will be held on Wednesday, October 27, 2021 at 6:00 p.m. in Room 133 of the Brookfield Municipal Center, 100 Pocono Road, Brookfield, Connecticut to receive public comment on proposed amendments to the Brookfield Sewer Use Rules and Regulations and on the proposed adoption of an Amended Water Pollution Control Plan.

 

The Authority proposes to impose a partial moratorium on sewer connections for the purpose of limiting new sewer discharges to the municipal sewer system.  In that regard the Authority proposes to amend Section 1.2 Treatment Capacity Management to restrict the properties to which sewer service is available and to restrict such availability to a maximum discharge of 2,000 gallons per day, subject however, to a further determination of capacity availability; and to amend Section 2.0 Sewer Connection Permit: Standards of Construction – Lapse of Permit to limit to one year the maximum period for which a sewer discharge permit may be extended.

 

The Authority proposes to adopt an Amended Water Pollution Control Plan to further implement the proposed partial sewer connection moratorium.

 

A copy of the proposed amendments to the Sewer Use Rules and Regulations and a copy of the proposed Amended Water Pollution Control Plan are on file and available for public examination at the Brookfield Town Clerk’s Office and are also available for examination on, and may be downloaded from the Brookfield WPCA website, at www.brookfieldwpca.org/notices
