Wallingford approves $60M for phosphorus treatment project

The Town Council approved an ordinance last week to appropriate $60 million for wastewater treatment plant upgrades aimed at reducing phosphorous discharge. The town has submitted the project to DEEP for a grant from the Clean Water Fund. With a state grant of $19.9 million and state loan of $38 million, the net cost to town would be $2.1 million, according to the ordinance. Several towns, including Wallingford, are required by DEEP to perform upgrades to their wastewater plants to improve phosphorus removal systems.
