Old Lyme Residents Vote in Referendum Today on Sound View Sewer Project

The Cross Lane Polling Station in Old Lyme open at 6 a.m.

Old Lyme voters go to the polls today to vote in a town-wide referendum on whether the Town should appropriate $9.5 million to fund the proposed sewer project in the Sound View neighborhood.

The question on the ballot is: “Shall the Town of Old Lyme appropriate $9,500,000 for construction of the Sound View and Miscellaneous Town Area B Sewer Project and authorize the issuance of bonds, notes and other obligations to finance said appropriation? ” The response options are simply Yes or No.

The Cross Lane Polling Station opens at 6 a.m. today and closes at 8 p.m. Voters must present identification in order to vote.

We will publish the result here on very shortly after their announcement.



  1. Bill Folland says

    Septic system upgrades are needed at many shoreline properties to prevent further pollution of Long Island Sound. The solution proposed by this referendum is flawed and should be voted down. The devil is in the details that have been cleaverly, and one could say deceitfully , omitted from an honest discussion with Old Lyme residents. Enough said.

  2. Gary Johnson says

    I don’t understand why individual houses that have conforming septic systems have to be subject to this financial obligation if it passes. Each individual with a nonconforming system should be made to have it corrected by a certain date.
