WESTFIELD - The city of Westfield is taking the necessary steps to clean-up the sewage lagoon site located directly behind the Westfield City Services campus along the Midland Trail.

"Once it was determined the lagoon would be taken out of service, the city started to plan how to safely remove the sludge and remediate the lagoons," said Jeremy Lollar, Public Works director. "Once the lagoons are properly cleaned, the area will turn in to an amenity for our citizens."

The 18-acre lagoon was an active sewage treatment site since the 1960's. Citizens Energy Group disconnected the site in 2016 by constructing a new sewage pumping station.

Since that time, the city of Westfield has followed the necessary protocols set by IDEM to make sure the sludge is dredged and disposed of properly.

The process will take a year to complete at which time the construction of a new wildlife habitat will begin. A portion of the site will be turned in to a designated wetland and another area will be transformed in to a fishing pond.
