Connecticut Water will be replacing about 7,400 feet, or 1.4 miles, of old water main in two separate projects.
- White Sands Beach - about 4,100 feet of nearly 100 year old water main will be replaced. The project is scheduled for late summer/early fall 2019.
- Wildwood - about 3,3-- feet of nearly 50 year old water main will be replaced. The project is scheduled to begin this spring.
Connecticut Water will use door tags to directly notify customers that may be affected in the area at least 24 hours in advance if there is any planned disruption in water service.
This project will be 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.
