Candlewood Lake Area Brookfield Survey

Link to Survey


As you may have learned, the Brookfield Water Pollution Control Authority (WPCA) has commissioned a Wastewater Management Plan with a State Clean Water Fund grant for the area in Brookfield that drains to Candlewood Lake. The Plan is to determine the public health and environmental adequacies of wastewater practices in the Study Area and develop technically viable, cost-effective solutions to correct identified deficiencies. In particular, the Plan will assess the impacts, if any, of wastewater on the water quality of Candlewood Lake on a property-by-property basis for all properties in the Study Area. It is important to be sure the most accurate information is available on each property. Project documents can be viewed online at

This phase of the Study includes a septic system questionnaire and field studies to determine the extent to which typical existing septic systems are removing nutrients such as phosphorus and nitrogen. The quality of Candlewood Lake is controlled by nutrients levels.
