Haddad Applauds Grant For Four CornersJune 4, 2018
I am pleased to announce that the State Bond Commission has approved a $3 million state grant to Mansfield for the Four Corners Sanitary Sewer Project.
This grant was requested by the Town of Mansfield and is the culmination of years of efforts by our local elected officials including Mayors Paul Shapiro and Betsy Paterson, town government leadership and Mansfield's legislative delegation including state Senator Mae Flexer and Representative Linda Orange and myself.
Approval of the grant-in-aid is welcomed news for many residents of Mansfield. The funding means that the state will help pay for the project instead of having residents shoulder the entire burden through property taxes or sewer assessments.
In addition, the water quality in the area has been impaired for years, likely due to overuse of septic systems, and the project will help resolve that issue and encourage economic development at Four Corners.
The Four Corners Water and Sewer Project encompasses an approximately 500-acre area surrounding and extending north and west of the intersection of Routes 195 and 44 in northern Mansfield, which serves as the northern gateway to Mansfield and the University of Connecticut.
The project will extend sanitary sewers to land surrounding the Route 44/195 intersection and will include 22,000 feet of sewer piping, two pump stations and additional required equipment and materials.
