Attorney Capossela & Jay Ussery, Mansions on the Scantic
Attorney Capossela stated that he had initially spoke to the Board in June of 2003 about the
Chapman Project. Since the North Rd Sewer Project was voted down, he is back for guidance for
the design of a sewer line to Broad Brook. A lengthy discussion continued about gravity, force
main sewer and pump stations. Mr. Anderson stated that it is not a given that they can go to
Broad Brook. Attorney Capossela asked for direction from the WPCA; they are ready to move
forward. Mr. Tyler replied that if approved, it would make sense for as much as possible be
gravity. Attorney Cummings suggested that Chapman submit an application with plans and
profiles. Mr. Leslie explained that the application is the easy part; the sewer service area issue
will need to be resolved. They were given the benefit for North Rd because a majority of the
project was in the sewer service area and all of Rt. 140 is in the sewer service area. Attorney
Capossela and Jay Ussery left the meeting at this time.
*Attorney Cummings arrived at 7:17 pm and remained until adjournment.
