Essex/Old Saybrook - Bokum Road
Water main installation has been completed along Bokum Road in the communities of Essex and Old Saybrook.
Approximately 2.4 miles of water main was installed on Bokum Road between Route 154 (Middlesex Turnpike) in Old Saybrook and Viny Hill Drive in Essex.
This water main connects our water systems that serve customers in in Chester, Clinton, Deep River, Essex, Guilford, Madison, Old Saybrook and Westbrook. By connecting these systems, we will be able to move water between these two systems to meet future droughts and peak seasonal demands, increase the amount of water available for fire-fighting, and use our existing water resources more efficiently.
Permanent paving of the project area has not yet been scheduled, but will not occur until spring 2018.
