MARLBOROUGH, Conn., June 21, 2024 — Connecticut Water Company will begin a $1 million project to install new water main in Marlborough on portions of Myrna Drive and Fuller Road the week of June 24 in order to provide improved water quantity and quality to area residents.

“Investing in drinking water infrastructure improves water system reliability and enhances water quality,” stated Vice President of Service Delivery, Rose Gavrilovic, P.E. She added, “When customers turn on the tap they expect high-quality water, without interruption. This investment in new water main will serve customers for decades to come.”

Work hours will be 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, with an expected completion in September 2024. Customers in the construction area have been notified of the project and will receive advance notice of any scheduled water service interruption because of the water main installation project.

The project is funded through the Water Infrastructure and Conservation Adjustment (WICA) on customer bills. Connecticut Water’s goal is to replace about one percent of its more than 1,850 miles of water main every year through the WICA program. The company plans to invest over $60 million in water treatment, water storage and pipelines in 2024.
