Brookfield could seek state funding to extend sewer system

Brookfield could seek state funding to extend the sewer system across the Still River.  The  Water Pollution Control Authority says the  municipal sewer line would be hooked up to serve nine buildings on 6 properties near the downtown district, at the intersection of Federal Road and Route 25.  According to the Authority, those properties are currently connected via septic systems to failing historic dry wells.  The Planning and Land Use Commission voted last week to recommend the sewer work to ensure wastewater is treated before it enters the Still River.  A portion of the estimated $1 million cost range would be covered by the six property owners. Brookfield could apply to the state’s Small Town Economic Assistance Program, or, STEAP for a grant.  The Boards of Selectmen and Finance would have to review the proposal to submit a grant application.  The application deadline is mid-August. The Board of Finance previously voted against using American Rescue Plan Act funding for the project.
