The Brookfield Water Pollution Control Authority has been awarded two state study grants, totalling $330,000. One is for a comprehensive, forward-looking Facilities Plan, required by the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection. The other is to study creative approaches to intercepting septic flow from Brookfield properties into Candlewood Lake. Brookfield’s system has 33 miles of sewer infrastructure servicing commerce along Federal Road, all the schools, and many condo complexes. Fourteen pump stations collect wastewater and pump it to Danbury for treatment. The Authority's office has moved from Brookfield Town Hall to a new Operations Center at 53A Commerce Road.
