Water main cleaning scheduled to take place in Bantam, Goshen, Litchfield, and Torrington
BRIDGEPORT, CONN. – April 7, 2022 – Aquarion Water Company today announced a water main cleaning project in the company’s Litchfield system. The project, scheduled to take place between April 11 and May 12, 2022, is being undertaken to ensure customers in Bantam, Goshen, Litchfield, and Torrington continue to receive the highest quality water.
The project is scheduled to be completed over five weeks. During this time, customers may notice temporary low pressure or discoloration in their water. This discoloration results from the temporary disturbance of the water flow, which stirs up naturally occurring minerals that settle in water mains. Aquarion recommends customers store water in their refrigerators for drinking and cooking. Customers should also refrain from washing laundry if water is discolored. Prior to resuming use, customers should run their cold water faucets until the water appears clear.
Customers can sign up to receive an automated message to inform them when their water will be affected. Aquarion encourages customers to visit www.aquarionwater.com/alerts to sign up for alerts and to get the latest information on the water main cleaning project, including the schedule of upcoming streets where water mains will be cleaned. The cleaning schedule for the first day of the project is:
Monday, April 11, 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Town of Litchfield
- Goshen Road
- North Lake Street
- Prospect Street
