Point of Woods CT Sewage
News - October 2008

WPCA Newsletter

From the Chairman

The Water and Sewer project is underway! Paganelli Construction has begun to work and Rte 156 and we expect that they will be working within Point O’Woods this winter. The ground breaking ceremony was held on September 19, 2008 and was well attended by the WPCA, the Board, past Presidents, the DEP, Paganelli Construction and our property owners.

As you all know, this is a major construction project and will require continued dedication on the part of the WPCA and the Board. As we move into the full construction phase I ask for your patience and understanding. We will make every effort to complete the project as quickly as possible and with the least disruption. However, we can all expect that our lives at POW will be more difficult than we are accustomed to. I hope that we can all maintain our good humor throughout.

The newsletter will be distributed monthly, and along with updated FAQ’s, will be available by clicking on WPCA on the POW website, www.powbeach.net and the WPCA website, www.point-o-woodswpca.com. If you would like to receive a copy in the mail please notify Bill Pape if you have not already done so, PO Box 186, South Lyme, CT 06376.

Please feel free to contact the WPCA with your questions at any time or to attend WPCA meetings. Contact information, meeting schedules, agendas, minutes and communication documents are available through the WPCA link on the POW website.

This month marks a transition in the communications role of the WPCA. Kathy McKeough has been elected President of the Board of Governor’s of POW. As such she cannot continue in her current role on the WPCA. Jack Harney will assume her duties in regards to communications of the WPCA. We wish to thank Kathy for all of her great work on the WPCA and wish her well in her new position.



Progress Update

We have provided detailed updates in our August mailing if you did not receive the mailing or would like a copy, please visit the web site or notify Bill Pape. The addresses for both are noted above.



We will update you regularly on the progress and plans for construction. As with any project the timeline for construction will change based on progress and weather. We will publish construction FAQ’s as well as post information within POW and on the WPCA web site.

Paganelli Construction will use Anderson Park to store their equipment and to house their administration trailers. In addition, RFP engineering will have an administration trailer in the park. Paganelli has agreed to reconfigure the Park to create a more enjoyable space for our Recreation Program. We will have the use of it t the end of the project.

Doug Hill, RFP’s engineer, will be on site during the construction project. Please feel free to contact him with your questions. We ask that you direct all questions to Doug, including those for Paganelli. Doug will serve as the interface with Paganelli. Please do not contact Paganelli directly. In case of emergency Doug can be reached at (860)558-8669(cell).
