Blodgett Landing, Newbury, NH

Blodgett Landing is on the shores of Lake Sunapee in Newbury, New Hampshire.  It is a census-designated community with a population of 152 in 2020. It has many older camps, which have gradually been converted to year-round use.  By 2009, the community’s fifty-year-old wastewater treatment facility had begun to fail, and the Town of Newbury voted to construct a large enviro-septic system to replace it. The new system was completed in 2011 and serves 145 separate connections; it has a maximum design capacity of 50,000 gallons per day (gpd). Note that the designs and specifications of wastewater system alternatives outside of New Hampshire may not meet NH DES standards. While the exact systems below may not be allowed, they are directionally in line with what is possible beyond conventional sewer or septic.
