System Upgrade Projects

Upgrades 2016-2017 

The Brookfield WPCA has sponsored the original purchase of the Geographical Information System (GIS) for the Town of Brookfield. The WPCA has its own seat on the system with use for geographically locating and updating the entire system. This data is actively being used in the field to view up-to-date field conditions. It is also being studied to model the system to determine pinch points that may occur within the Brookfield system as a result of further expansion.

Contract for 777 Federal Road Pump Station Improvements: Larger pumps and upgraded controls systems were installed to service Federal Road North District growth of the Four Corners area, residential and commercial.

Contract for Railroad Pump Station Improvements: This is a 1996 station that needed upgrades to service the new High Meadow area system. It also services the High School which services as  an emergency shelter. A new control system and permanent stand-by generator has been installed.

Contract for North Pump Station Improvements: This is a 1993 station that needed upgrades to service growth in the Four Corners area. A new control system and upgraded valve pits were installed.

Contract for Federal Road Force Main Improvements: This was a complex repair project to remove a blockage in a four inch forced main line. Another goal of this project was to improve the vacuum break venting system at the Federal Road overpass of Route 7.

Assistance to the Brookfield Housing Authority: Brookfield WPCA assisted the Brookfield Housing Authority (BHA) to completely re-do the sewer system at the Brooks Quarry Development. This project was funded by a Connecticut Housing Finance Authority (CHFA) grant.
