Numerous studies over the last 35 years identified the need for improved wastewater management for densely developed residential neighborhoods in Old Saybrook, Connecticut. The Town's strong preference to address these concerns was for on-site management, and they resisted installing a sewer system, despite pressure and a lawsuit from the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP). Through persistent efforts that included mediation and legislative changes, the Town and the DEP agreed on an onsite wastewater management plan. This paper describes development of this plan, which was approved by the Town in August 2009, and the methods used for implementing this ground-breaking program.
