North Stamford is less than a year from city sewers, but it will cost residents $8 million long term

Local water authority officials were able to give North Stamford residents more details on sewer improvements expected to break ground before the end of this year including the cost of phase one: $8.15 million, much of it financed by homeowners long term. The city’s Water Pollution Control Authority and the project’s structural engineers Tighe and Bond provided the information during an online meeting last week, discussing the first of three potential construction phases bringing sewer service to the area. The first phase, which includes properties mostly east of High Ridge Road from the Merritt Parkway to Perna Lane, is estimated to cost about $8.15 million. City boards previously authorized the WPCA to spend more than $6 million on the project. Officials are working on revising the project design to reflect raised sewer lines and obtaining the proper permits. Then, they will open a bidding process for the project, they said.
