$48 million sewer project on Ridgefield ballot next month

Voters will be asked to approve the funds needed for a plan to combine the town’s two wastewater treatment facilities into one plant and upgrade it to meet new state and federal guidelines. The Election Day vote will allow the town to meet the required timeline — securing a construction contract by July — to have state grants cover about $11.5 million of the project. Increased sewer rates for those on the systems and $8 million from the general taxpayers will make up the remaining $37.5 million.
