Sewage Problems in Old Saybrook

The refusal on the part of some Old Saybrook homeowners to accept what the state DEP calls overwhelmingly evidence that their septic systems are polluting Long Island Sound means that some homeowners there can’t convert their summer houses to year-round residences.

The town’s First Selectmen says summer-only people will be able to live in Old Saybrook all year if town residents agree to a new municipal sewage treatment system. The downside, according to the town, is that the year-round population of Old Saybrook could increase by 50 percent. The Hartford Courant, which wrote about it back in August, covers it again, here.
