Aquarion Improving Water Mains in North Canaan

Mar 28, 2024 by Peter Fazekas

Water main cleaning scheduled to launch April 1

GREENWICH, CONN. – March 28, 2024 – Aquarion Water Company today announced a water main cleaning project in the company’s North Canaan system. The project is scheduled to take place from Monday, April 1 through Tuesday, April 16, and is being undertaken to ensure customers in North Canaan continue to receive the highest quality water. 

The cleaning for April 1 and April 4 (subject to change) will take place on the following streets:

April 1 - Evening (9:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m.)
Daisy Hill Road, East Main Street, Elm Street, Gandolfo Drive Granger Lane, Lime Kiln Road, Main Street, North Elm Street, Patty Lane

April 4 - (8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.)
Orchard Street, Ashley Falls Road (Route 7), Barracks Road, Cemetery Road, Clayton Road, Granite Avenue, Granite Avenue Extension, Killawee Street, Railroad Street

During the flushing of the system, 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. 

Aquarion encourages customers to visit to sign up for automated alerts and to get the latest information on the project. Customers with questions should contact Aquarion’s Customer Service Center at 1-800-732-9678 or email
