The Town of Clinton and the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP)(formerly the Department Environmental Protection, or DEP) entered into a Consent Order in 1997, agreeing that the Town would prepare an engineering report to evaluate existing and potential community pollution problems related to onsite wastewater disposal. A copy of the Consent Order
(No. WC5238, dated October 10, 1997) is included in Appendix A.

The Town and its Water Pollution Control Commission (WPCC) engaged CDM Smith, Inc. to complete a Wastewater Facilities Plan, building on prior documents and related work. This Plan includes an investigation of alternatives for on-site or off-site treatment and disposal of wastewater, and recommends solutions for each area included in the study. The plan is consistent with guidelines established in federal and state regulations and considers the present and future needs of the Town.

    Purpose of this Study

    The purpose of this Long-Range Facilities Assessment Study is to provide the Clinton community with an understanding of the challenges facing its elementary and middle schools now and in the near future, a comprehensive view of the range of possible options with cost implications, and a means to reach consensus on the best possible solution to those challenges. The intent of the Long-Range Facilities Assessment Study process is:
    • To offer a transparent process to move the community toward consensus.
    • To present information clearly to decision-makers.
    • To involve interested members of the community in an interactive discussion of the issues.
    • To record discussions and decisions reached by the community.
    • To present the final recommendations as a foundation for future actions by Clinton.

    This Study provides for:

    • Identification of all maintenance issues (including architectural, mechanical/electrical/plumbing, and fire protection conditions) on a school-by-school basis.

    • Prioritization of these maintenance issues on the basis of urgency and level of risk. • Linked assessment of long term educational space needs with recommended options for related demolition, renovation, and construction.

    • Determination wherever possible of approximate costs related to all above items.
