Repairs Could Take 3-5 Months At Cromwell Sewage Plant

(CBS Connecticut) — Officials are cleaning up, after a fire at a sewage treatment plant in Cromwell today.

Water treatment is not effected, but officials say sludge burning is halted for now.

The fire damaged air treatment equipment at an incinerator that burns sewage sludge.  Mattabassett District Director Arthur Simonian says it is too soon to tell how much repairs will cost.

“We will make that assessment some time in the next couple of weeks once we know further what is involved,” Simonian said. “We know there is quite a bit of lead time to get parts from overseas for these components, so we are expecting the repair could take three to five months to complete.”
