Bill Hogan, CT DEP – Discussion of Development of Sewer Service Area
Mr. Hogan gave a presentation to the boards explaining the goals and objectives of the State’s plan of conservation and development and how it is related to the development of East Windsor.
He explained a logical path that the town might follow in developing it’s own plan of conservation and development and what to do in areas where the town and state might have differences.
He suggested that the various boards and commissions agree upon which areas of town should have sewers and that this should be reflected in the zoning of those areas.
Mr. Hogan suggested that the members read the state statues, which give the WPCA its powers and responsibilities. He stated that the WPCA has the responsibility to determine the boundaries, which establish the sewer service area.
He suggested that the town adopt a temporary plan of development while a final sewer service area map is developed.
The final map should include lot lines and a land parcel should be either totally within the service area or totally outside of the sewer service area.
Lacking specific details, Mr. Hogan offered no suggestions on how to deal with current projects, which may be considered outside the current sewer service area, but are requesting to construct sewers and extend them to the sewer service area.
