About the Project:
Connecticut Water replaced approximately 10,600 feet, or 2 miles, of old water main along portions of Weymouth Road, Bridge Lane, Parsons Lane, Manning Road, and Campania Road.
All water main installation work is completed and the mains are in service.
We are in the process of service tie-overs to the new main on Manning Road and Campania Road. Final paving and topsoil is being installed. We have set a tentative date for full completion by the end of December.
A separate project to replace about 5,000 feet, or a little less than 1 mile, of old water main is scheduled along Enfield Street from Carl Street to the Massachusetts line, and will include Sword Ave. and Connecticut Ave. Portions of Carl Street and Knox Street may be done at a later date. So far, approximately 600 feet of water main has been installed. A traffic control officer is on site during construction hours to ensure that access is maintained for the businesses along this stretch of road.
These projects are being done through Connecticut Water’s Water Infrastructure and Conservation Adjustment (WICA). Systematically replacing aging pipes is part of our continuing effort to provide a reliable supply of high quality drinking water and world-class service to customers. This project will help us to conserve water, a precious natural resource, by replacing old pipe that is more likely to leak underground than newer ductile iron pipe.
