The Town of Fairfield's former public works superintendent has been sentenced to 18 months in prison plus three years’ probation and restitution in the first fill pile trial involving Owen Fish Pond.
Scott Bartlett was convicted of felony dumping charges in May of this year.
An in-depth investigation between Fairfield police and the state’s attorney's office showed that Bartlett was involved in the dumping of hazardous materials on town property in June of 2018. He faced numerous charges in connection to the findings of contaminated soil that was dredged from Owen Fish Pond then used to build a berm around a fill pile at the DPW site.
Brian Carey, the town's former conservation director and interim public works director, was found not guilty of the same charges.
Bartlett and several other defendants will stand trial in the main fill pile case this fall.
