Old Lyme plans two sessions on wastewater management feasibility study

Old Lyme — The town will host presentations on a proposed wastewater management feasibility study that will include a history and overview of the project and a question-and-answer session.

The meetings will be at 7:30 p.m. on Monday and at 11 a.m. March 30.

According to a town news release, Woodard & Curran of Cheshire would conduct the study, which would evaluate the wastewater treatment needs of shoreline areas and consider alternatives that meet public health standards. The study would examine possible community system sites and make recommendations for a community wastewater management program.

The study would address the system’s potential impact on residents, infrastructure and the environment, as well as the costs for its design, construction and operations.

The town is eligible for a 55 percent reimbursement for the study through the Clean Water Fund. Residents will vote on appropriating funds for the study at a special town meeting at 7:30 p.m. April 9 in the middle school auditorium.

First Selectwoman Bonnie A. Reemsnyder said in a news release that the Board of Selectmen supports the study “because it will provide us with information we need to make fiscally sound and environmentally safe decisions for the residents of our community.”

Information about the study will be posted on the town website: www.oldlyme-ct.gov. Visit the website for a full news release, including a schedule of when the Monday presentation will appear on Comcast Public Access Channel 14.
