About Water Pollution Control Authority And Treatment Plant

By Connecticut State statute [Chapter 103 – Sections 245 through 273] the WPCA is a separate legal entity from the City of Shelton and has the authority and the responsibility to plan, acquire, construct, equip, extend, enlarge, maintain, repair, reconstruct, operate, supervise, and manage a municipal sewerage system for the benefit of the City of Shelton.  Also involved is the collection, transportation, and disposal of sewerage, liquid or solid, which may contaminate or pollute or affect the cleanliness or purity of any water.  A sewerage system means any device, equipment, appurtenance, facility and method for collecting, transporting, receiving, treating, disposing, of or discharging sewage.  The WPCA also may have jurisdiction over community or private sewerage systems.

The WPCA has the authority to levy assessments against properties which benefit from the sewerage system(s).  The WPCA may establish fair and reasonable charges for connection with and for the use of a sewerage system.  The Connecticut State statute also has many other powers and responsibilities and special provisions for the sale of bonds, notes, or other obligations, as well as dealing with many other special conditions.  The WPCA must also comply with pollution abatement orders issued by the State Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP).

  • The City of Shelton Water Pollution Control Authority (WPCA) is responsible for the maintenance, upkeep, upgrades and improvements of over 100 miles of sanitary sewer lines (Wastewater Collection System) within the City.
  • The office is responsible for all sewer construction inspections, sewer use and connection fee questions, sewer availability questions, and the scheduling of contractors for sewer cleaning and televising, manhole rehabilitation and chemical root treatment applications.
  • The Sewer Administrator’s office reviews CCTV (Closed Circuit Televising Program) videos and adds the data into InfoNet, an asset management software program specifically designed to manage City infrastructure utilities.
  • The office is also charged with enforcing the DEEP mandated FOG (Fats, Oils & Grease) program which involves all food service facilities and restaurants within the city. These establishments must comply with the regulations which require grease removal from their sewer discharges by having grease traps in all class III and IV Food Preparation Establishments.
  • The WPCA continues with the removal of any rainwater from the sanitary sewer system and requests any property owners with sump pumps or roof drains currently discharging into the sanitary sewer lines have them disconnected from the sanitary sewer system.

NOTE:  The WPCA does not have responsibility for City water or septic systems.  Contact Aquarion at 203-337-5910 for assistance with City water.  Contact Naugatuck Valley Health District (NVHD) at 203-881-3255 for assistance with septic issues.
