East Lyme — The Water and Sewer Commission adopted a resolution Tuesday stating that it would allow 13,000 gallons per day of sewage capacity for Landmark Development's proposed housing complex in the Oswegatchie Hills.

As part of an appeals case, a state Superior Court judge had told the commission to specify how much sewage capacity it would permit Landmark. The development company has been appealing the town's 2012 decision to deny its request for 118,000 gallons per day of sewage capacity.

The commission, which deliberated at its Feb. 25 meeting, said the town has between 130,000 and 225,000 gallons per day of remaining sewage capacity. In Tuesday's resolution, it cited the town's sewer flow history and a town facilities report, among other documents, as support for its decision to allow the development 13,000 gallons.

The town will now file in court the resolution, which revises and amends its 2012 resolution denying the 118,000 gallons per day request. Court hearings will continue on the case.
