The Westport Board of Selectmen, acting in its capacity as the Water Pollution Control Authority, tonight unanimously voted at a public hearing for a benefit assessment of $14,824 to be placed on each of the 342 Saugatuck Shores homes fitted with sewer lines.
The assessment to be paid over 19 years is separate from the annual sewer user fee, according to Public Works Director Stephen Edwards.
The assessments were levied for the construction of a sewer system costing more than $5 million three years ago.
Edwards explained that the system, dependent upon E/One grinder pumps in each home, not traditional gravity systems, had been in the works since 2000 due to concerns about septic system failures compromising water quality in the area’s lagoon.
