White Sand Beach, Wildwood, Soundview, Old Lyme Shores
THIS PROJECT HAS BEEN TEMPORARILY SUSPENDED
In response to Governor Lamont’s ‘Stay Safe, Stay Home’ executive order issued on March 20, 2020, Connecticut Water has suspended all non-emergency construction activity until further notice. This includes water main replacement projects and other planned capital improvements. Our personnel will continue to perform essential construction activity, such as the repair of water main breaks that are needed to continue to provide a reliable supply of safe drinking water to customers and the community.

Soundview: Connecticut Water will be replacing about 5,000 ft of 90+ year old water main. The project is scheduled to begin the week of March 9. The new main will be installed on the following streets: Pond Road; the upper portions of Swan and Portland roads; a section of Route 156; the extensions of Portland, Hartford and Swan north of Route 156; and North Lane.
Old Lyme Shores: Connecticut Water will be replacing about 9,000 feet of 90+ year old water main. The project is scheduled to begin the week of March 23. The streets impacted will be Billow Road, Brightwater Road, Bellaire Road, Saltaire Drive, Sea Spray Lane, and North Lane.
The work hours will be 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
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.
