Water Pollution Control Authority (WPCA)

The Town of Trumbull has re-opened most Town buildings to the public beginning Wednesday, July 1, 2020 including Town Hall, the Recreation Office, and the EMS building. These buildings are reopened on a staggered basis for employees and by appointment only for the public until further notice. 

The public must have an appointment to come into any Town Buildings with the exception of the Tax Collector’s and Town Clerk’s office where walk-ins are welcome. It is strongly recommended however that tax payments continue to be made online or via the US mail in order to avoid extended wait times at Town Hall. https://www.trumbull-ct.gov/285/Online-Tax-InquiryPayment-System 

An online scheduling system to make appointments with Town departments can be found on the Town website. Please go to the home page and click on the link for "Schedule an Appointment" and follow the directions for the department you wish to visit.  Direct Link: https://veoci.com/veoci/p/form/4cakv8xncy7b#tab=entryForm  Residents can always call by phone and make appointments.  Please call 203 452-5000 for a directory of departments. If you are unable to locate a department, please call 203 452-5005 for assistance.

To avoid problems at your home, Please DO NOT flush disinfectant wipes (or any type of wipes), paper towels, facial tissue or any materials other than toilet paper down your toilet as they are NOT designed to break down in the wastewater treatment process.

The name of the Sewer Commission was officially changed to the Water Pollution Control Authority (WPCA) in 1999. The Authority is self-funded and employs an Assistant WPCA Administrator and two full-time maintenance personnel. There are approximately 180 miles of sewers in Trumbull and the vast majority is constructed using the recommended minimum 8-inch diameter.

Topography is a prime consideration with the system's design. It is to the advantage of the Town to have gravity flow within the system wherever possible. Gravity flow is much less costly and troublesome.

However, complete gravity flow is not possible or economically feasible. For this reason, 13 pump stations are used in Town. Approximately 10,000 homes and businesses are connected.
