Public Notice


The Bloomfield City Council will hold a public hearing on the construction loan application for the wastewater treatment plant improvements, at their meeting commencing at 7:00 P.M. on June 4, 2020. The hearing will be held via electronic means due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The SRF loan in the amount of $8,004,000.00 will be used to make improvements in the wastewater treatment system to meet NPDES permit limits for ammonia, nitrogen, dissolved oxygen (DO), and E. coli. This will be completed by converting Lagoon Cell 1 into two aerated cells, Lagoon Cell 2 into one aerated cell and one quiescent cell. Four SAGRs will be constructed in the remaining Lagoon Cell 2 to provide tertiary ammonia removal and disinfection.
