$57 million is a lot of money!

When Farmington residents head to the polls this November they will be faced with a $57 million question. 

On the ballot residents will be asked whether they want to fund upgrades to the water pollution control facility, the Hartford Courant reports. 

After state grants are applied the true cost to local taxpayers is $32.8 million, the Courant reports. Reasons cited for the project include the fact some equipment dates back to the early 1960s and is outdated. 

A new system will be more efficient and remove more nutrients, the Courant reports. If the project is approved, construction could commence in the spring of 2015. 

Last year the price tag was originally quoted to be $52 million, according to a Patch article at the time.

We could build a 8000 seat baseball stadium for that.
