Sen. Cassano, Senate Approve Legislation Expanding Bolton Lakes Authority for Wastewater Systems


Early Friday, State Senator Steve Cassano (D-Manchester) and the State Senate approved legislation that would allow the Bolton Lakes Regional Water Pollution Control Authority to authorize the expansion of its wastewater system into the town of Coventry. This is intended to address ongoing issues with septic systems in that region of the state.

"I'm glad my colleagues and I were able to take this important action to provide the Bolton Lakes Regional Water Pollution Control Authority with oversight to address issues ongoing in its region," said Sen. Cassano. "It will enable the town of Coventry to deal with failing septic systems. This ensures sanitary sewer projects are better connected to the towns they support I look forward to its passage by the House."

Groups including the Connecticut Council of Small Towns and the Bolton Lakes Regional Water Pollution Control Authority supported Senate Bill 701, "An Act Concerning The Bolton Lakes Regional Water Pollution Control Authority," citing a limited expansion project of septic systems into Coventry that has been in development for years. With an expanded septic system in that region, Coventry would be given the ability to bring new business to a commercially zoned area. In other words, the legislation allows for the expansion of wastewater treatment lines into Coventry in an area of the town that would directly benefit from such an expansion through increased ability to draw business development, supporting the town and region's financial health.
