The WPCA staff will be conducting field work associated with its ongoing efforts to determine external sources of flow. (Ground water and non-sewer water entering the sanitary sewer collection system)
Work is scheduled to begin on the evening of Monday, April 3, 2017 and is planned to occur between the hours of 10:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. The work will continue each night until Friday at 6:00 a.m. on April 7, 2017.
The field work involves the setup and removal of test equipment and the opening of manholes to monitor night time flows while obtaining samples.
Our trained staff will be working quietly, as the equipment used will not create any loud noises. The team of three will be driving the WPCA’s silver F-250 pick-up truck. They will have town issued identification badges and uniforms.
Here is the daily schedule of work to be done:
Monday Night April 3, 2017 – This work will be in non-residential areas and easements. We will set up on the two longest runs, from East Street south along the Bantam River through the Litchfield Country Club to the end of South Lake Street. We will also be testing the main interceptor line from the beaver dam, located on White Woods Road, along our sewer right-a-way to the Bantam River, crossing at High Bridge Road. 
Tuesday Night April 4, 2017 – This work will be in the eastern part of the system. We will set up in the more residential area along Meadow Street and Gallows Lane. We may also set up along Harris Road and do a few spot checks near the intersection of Constitution Way and White Woods Road, as well as along Russell Street.  
Wednesday Night April 5, 2017 – This work will be in the western part of the system, as we will set up closer to the treatment plant located in Bantam. We will sample the main interceptor coming into the plant, and do a few spot checks around Highland Avenue and Bantam Lake Road.  
Thursday Night April 6, 2017 – This night’s work will be any alternative areas we want to check, which could include areas in Bantam along RT.202. We will finish any relevant areas that have not yet been sampled. Depending on time available we may set up on Torrington Road, just below Town Farm Road to the Litchfield-Torrington town line.
