About the Project:
Connecticut Water will be replacing 2,400 feet, or more than one-half mile, of old water main on Main Street between Benedict Street/Eagle Street and South Main Street.
Work hours will be 6 p.m. to 8 a.m., Sunday through Thursday, as directed by the Connecticut Department of Transportation. The project is expected to be completed in the fall.
Customers who will have their water service impacted by the project will be contacted directly by Connecticut Water. The company provides advance notice before planned water service interruptions.
Preliminary work on this project began the week of May 23. Construction activity will begin the week of May 29.
This project is 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.
