A request by Brookfield to divert the Limekiln Brook has been approved by the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection. The request was made to alleviate flooding conditions in the Meadowbrook Manor neighborhood.
Grants have been applied for in order to pay for the project, which is estimated to cost about $2.4 million.
Brookfield officials say it's not clear when the grants might be awarded because the state wants to consider a number of projects all at once. It could be as long as a year before Brookfield is notified if grant funding will be awarded.
