Four proposed housing developments in the Ridgewood downtown might require the village to replace piping to handle sewage flow, according to a report in The Ridgewood News.
Village Engineer Chris Rutishauser said additional piping may be needed in some locations to accommodate sewage, particularly around Ridgewood Station, according to the report.
Much of the village's piping is 80-90 years old, he said, adding that he didn't think the developments themselves would require an upgrade at the wastewater control plant.
The developers could be on the hook for any additional infrastructure changes their projects bring to town, including traffic upgrades.
Proposed are the 114-unit Ridgewood Station at the old Ken Smith site; the 106 unit Dayton at the old Brogan Cadillac on S. Broad St.; the 50-unit Enclave, which drastically changes the Sealfons building on Maple, Franklin and East Ridgewood Ave; as well as the 50-unit Chestnut Village, located near the YMCA on Chestnut Street.
