Sewer Service Area Map
Within the Town of Stafford's Wastewater Facility Plan it was required to establish a sewer system area (SSA).  An analysis was conducted to identify potential expansions of the sewer system during the planning period.  CDM, the professional engineers retained by the Water Pollution Control Authority, prepared and sent a questionnaire to the Stafford Planning and Zoning Commission, the Stafford Industrial Development Commission, and the North Central Health District to solicit informaiton regarding the potential growth in residential, commercial, and industrial sectors.  The feedback received served as the basis for estimation of the required future capacity of the WPCF.
