Mystic Water Pollution Control Facility (CT)

In recent years, the town of Stonington’s wastewater infrastructure had begun to show its age. Odor-control issues and adverse press reporting, as well as state regulations on nitrogen levels in effluent and the rate of commercial and community growth all placed strain on the town’s Mystic, Borough, and Pawcatuck water pollution control facilities. Since they were located near residential, commercial, and cultural sites, there was no available real estate to expand or build a new facility.
