Legal – Continued
Sewer Service Area – Discussion Continued
Laurie Whitten, Town of East Windsor Planner, sent a memo to Town Attorney, Steve Penney
and WPCA Attorney, Hal Cummings requesting clarification of the use of the sewer service area
map.
Attorney Purnhagen explained that the origination of the map was developed as a guidance tool
for the sizing of the treatment plant 15+ years ago. Things have changed since then; the plant
is operating at less than 50% capacity. Large commercial users have left the Town and
companies have become more efficient, using less water. The WPCA never adopted the sewer
service/sewer avoidance area map as a regulation. It was voted on at a Town Meeting and it is
up to the Town to utilize the map if it chooses.
Mr. Alibozek explained that when the plant was built in 1995, it was built to handle 2.4 million
gallons per day. The current use is about 1.1 million gallons per day.
When the WPCA receives an application, the Board looks at the technical aspects of the plans
and whether the plant has capacity for the project. The sewer service area map is a planning
tool. PZC can use the map to approve/deny an application if they choose. It is a Town approved
map, not a WPCA approved map.
