A grant has been awarded to Brookfield to replace a sewer system at an elderly housing complex in town. Brooks Quarry is for lower income seniors and people with disabilities.
For several years, some of the units have suffered a sewer system problem, where sewage backups into the units. The system has been described by plumbers as insufficient to support the 35 units at the complex near the Four Corners.
At the Board of Selectmen meeting Monday, First Selectman Bill Tinsley said the town has received a $465,000 grant for a complete replacement of the system. He says the project is almost bid ready.
