Sewer Service District
The Town of Hebron established a sewer service district in the 1980’s and constructed a public sewer system in the 1990’s that serves generally Hebron Center and the Amston Lake District and along Church Street (Route 85). The system is administered by the Water Pollution Control Commission (WPCA). Approximately 17 miles of sewer lines have been installed, and are supported by 9 pump stations. Sewers were installed along the following roads: Route 85 from Route 66 south to Crouch Road, Crouch Road, North Pond Road, Brennan Road, portions of Hope Valley Road, Slicer Drive, portions of Millstream Road, Kinney Road, portions of Wall Street, Main Street, Wellswood Road and the streets in the Amston Lake area.
While the primary purpose of the system was to address areas of septic failures, an important purpose was to promote economic development in Hebron consistent with the goals and objectives of the Town’s Plan of Conservation and Development.

Much of the Town of Hebron relies to a large extent on private wells for their drinking water supply. This is typical in a rural, residential New England community of this size and density. In those areas of Town where a public water supply is required, it is generally supplied by the Connecticut Water Company (CWC). CWC is a privately owned water company, headquartered in Clinton, CT and has been granted a franchise from the State of CT Public Utilities Regulatory Authority (PURA) to operate a water company in Hebron. CWC also operates under the review and oversight of the State of CT Department of Public Health to ensure that the systems, and the water supplied, meets the current public health standards.
Currently CWC owns and operates seven public water supply systems within Hebron, bringing public water to residences and businesses located in these neighborhoods. These seven systems are: Hebron Center; Amston Lake; Wellswood; Mill at Stonecroft; London Park; Country Manor; and, Christ Lutheran Church.
