Brookfield Sewer Districts
There are several distinct sewer districts that are monitored separately. For details on each district click on the links at the right.
These separate districts, active at the start of 2011, include:
• Federal Road South - From the Danbury town line to Route 133. There is an extension of this system to pick up the Raymour and Flanigan complex, the new Nabby Road town house complex up to Huckleberry School.
• Federal Road North - From Route 133 north to the New Milford town line.
• Center School, the High School and municipal buildings along Pocono Road.
• Three Condo: Cedar Brook, Whisconier Village and Stony Hill Village condominium developments. This district also includes Whisconier Middle School.
• New 2011: Old New Milford Road. This was a in-fill project to provide sewer service to 29 properties. Septic systems are a challenged in this commercial/industrial area limiting use.
• New 2011: Sandy Lane. This was a project to take advantage of the routing of the 2009 lines that now allow certain properties to connect to the sewer system via gravity. The Sandy Lane Condo Association properties and the commercial properties housing Bob's, AutoZone and Maggie McFly, for example, abandoned their pumping and emergency generator systems. These were costly to maintain, especially as they age.
• In planning for future: Dean Road Area. At the request of the Town Sanitarian and consent from the Board of Selectman and the Planning Commission, the WPCA embarked on an initiative to study the engineering and costs of sewering the Dean Road Area. This project awaits action from the Town Sanitarian.
• Completed 2013: Del Mar Drive Area. At the request of commercial property owners on this road both sewer and water are now provided. The project was combined with the Old New Milford Road project to form a distinct district.
• High Meadow Condo Area. At the request of the High Meadow Condo Owners Association, and consent from the Board of Selectman and the Planning Commission, the WPCA embarked on an initiative to study the engineering and costs of sewering the condo complexes bordered by the Rail Road, Route 133 and Silvermine Road, thus including the Newbury Crossing and Ledgewood Condos. The application for Wetlands approval was quite extensive. The project is limited to the dry summer months. In 2013, a town vote approved bonding for the project up to $2.5 million. In 2014 the engineering was completed, the project contract awarded in June 2014 and completed October 2015. The total cost came to $2.2 million.
• Planning for 2016: Brooks Quarry. This is an elderly housing project owned by the Brookfield Housing Authority (BHA) located at the North end of Laural Hill Road close to the intersection of Federal Road. A sub-standard sewer system was built in 1994 and has failed requiring frequent and extensive maintenance. The BHA now has a grant from Connecticut Housing Finance Authority (CHFA) to fund the project. With the grant is awarded, the project could start early 2016. This area is already on the sewer system in the Federal Road North district.
• Planning for 2016: Rollingwood. This is a project to take advantage of the routing of the 2009 lines and the Sandly Lane extension. The Rolingwood Condo Association properties can abandon their pumping and emergency generator systems. These are costly to maintain, especially as they age.
There are several system upgrade projects in recent years. See the list at the upper right.
