Sewer Needs Assessment
LELWD has teamed with CDM Smith to conduct a Needs Assessment for the Town of Littleton as it relates to sewer. The Sewer Needs Assessment project is the next step to develop a plan for Littleton to preserve water and land resources, and to promote smart economic growth. The Needs Assessment covers our water quality and wastewater needs, collection and treatment system technologies, alternatives solutions for various areas of need, and the siting of wastewater treatment facility. Sections of the assessment will be posted below as they become available.
During the October 2019 Special Town Meeting, the residents of Littleton passed two significant articles relating the the development of the Sewer Project. Littleton residents were recently mailed a letter that informed them on the updates of the Sewer Project.
LWD hired an engineering firm to conduct a peer review of major sewer efforts completed prior to October 2019. Part of that review was a hydrogeologic evaluation of the Littleton High School to support the construction of a proposed groundwater discharge for LHS.
The Home Rule Petition authorized by May 6, 2019 Annual Town Meeting was amended to transfer the supervision and control of the sewer district from the Board of Selectmen to the Board of Water Commissioners.
