Enter Town or City

Updated:  Friday, May 24, 2019     8:39 AM

Start Date:  Tuesday, May 28, 2019

Beginning Tuesday, May 28, Aquarion will be working on a water main replacement project on Gardiner Street.  Additional water main replacements on Edgerton Street and Birch Road will also be completed later in 2019.

The combined project, which will replace 9,100 feet of water main, is part of an ongoing program to improve Aquarion’s water distribution system and to ensure the highest quality water.  The infrastructure upgrades will also help to reduce leaks and water main breaks that can cause service interruptions.

During the project, customers in the area may experience temporary service disruptions or discolored water.  Aquarion recommends customers store water in their refrigerators for drinking and cooking in case these circumstances arise.  Customers also should refrain from washing laundry if their water is discolored.  Prior to resuming use, customers should run their cold-water faucets until the water appears clear. 

Due to construction, customers should expect minor traffic delays and possible detours during the working hours of 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.  Norwalk, CT-based M. Rondano Inc. will be serving as the contractor for the water main replacement project.

To keep customers informed about scheduled/unscheduled work, Aquarion utilizes a CodeRED notification system to call affected customers. Aquarion encourages customers to sign up for this free service at
