About the Project:
Connecticut Water is resuming work the week on May 11 on a water main replacement project on Boston Street (Route 146) in Guilford between Union and Route 1. Approximately 4,500 feet, or nearly 9/10ths of a mile, of 120 year old water main will be replaced. This phase of the project is expected to be completed by mid-June.
The next phase of this project will be Union Street to River Street.
We ask people to help protect the health and safety of our employees, contractors, their neighbors and the community by following recommended social distancing guidelines and allowing our people at least 6 feet of personal space. This helps us protect the people who make sure that clean, safe water reaches your tap 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
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 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.
