We are continuously working to maintain and improve the water system. Some of the major projects we are currently working on involve the installation of new, or the replacement of existing, equipment and facilities needed to provide safe, reliable water service.
A water main replacement project is scheduled to begin mid-March 2022 on Rugby Rd and Beaumont St. Additionally, we will be installing water main in an easement that runs between Rugby Rd. and Beaumont Pl. to connect the new water mains. This will require some excavation work at the western end of Beaumont Pl. Work is expected to be completed by July 1st. Final paving will then be scheduled in coordination with the Town of Fairfield.
The project, which will replace approximately 1360 feet of water main, is part of an ongoing program to improve Aquarion’s water distribution system and to ensure the highest quality water. The upgrades will also help to reduce the leaks and water main breaks that can cause service interruptions. Due to construction, customers should expect minor traffic delays and possible detours during the working hours of 7:00 am to 5:00 pm.
