North Avenue Tank Project - Westport

Sep 16, 2020 Connecticut

Project Goals and Objectives

Provide Westport residents with a significantly expanded water storage supply for fire protection and everyday water usage.

Scope of Work

Aquarion will begin site preparation for the North Avenue water tank project at 63-67 North Avenue in Westport. This initial work, scheduled to start June 4, calls for the installation of erosion controls, temporary fencing, and limited site clearing. The water tank project includes the construction of two 40 foot tall water tanks, removal of an existing tank, and extensive landscape restoration throughout the property. The project is expected to take approximately two years to complete.  

Customers with project-related questions may contact Mark Fois, Aquarion’s project manager, at (203) 395-4604 or mfois@aquarionwater.com.
