Ridgefield WPCA Wastewater Facilities Construction Update: Haviland Road between Limekiln Road and Still Road closed during construction hours

Route 7 Pump Station, Force Main and Wastewater Treatment Facility Decommissioning Project 

The Water Pollution Control Authority’s Wastewater Facilities Upgrade project includes the construction of approximately 13,600 linear feet of new 8-inch diameter underground force main piping from the Route 7 Pump Station to the South Street Wastewater Treatment Facility. The existing Route 7 Pump Station will be demolished and replaced with a new pump station in the same location on Route 7. The existing Route 7 Wastewater Treatment Facility will be decommissioned and demolished. The work is anticipated to occur from April 2022 through August 2023.

Typical construction hours have been extended to include a second shift from 3 p.m. to approximately 11 p.m. The first shift will be 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. The intent of these extended hours is to reduce the duration of disruption in the upcoming work areas and expedite construction of the project. Police officers will be on detail to direct traffic during both shifts to protect public safety.
