Connecticut Water Active in the Community

Our employees are active in the community and we support their volunteer and charitable efforts. Employees have organized collections for food and other charities, with our most recent collection for toiletries, clothes and footwear to be donated to the Connecticut Veterans Home in Rocky Hill. If you would like to donate items, view the list of articles needed and drop off donations at any of our work centers and offices through late October.
