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.

North Avenue Tank Project - Westport

May 9, 2022 Connecticut

Project Update 5/5/22

Both storage tanks have been completed and continue to operate as designed. They will provide a significant improvement to the Westport customers and community this Spring /summer when water demands are the highest.  The start of Spring also marks a transition into the Landscaping and Site Restoration phase of the project.  More than 95 new trees have been delivered and planted, nearly half the planned landscaping screening.  We await a delivery of the largest trees and this phase of work will take us into June and early Summer.  Final site restoration tasks such as the driveway and site fencing will likely be completed this Summer and we continue to coordinate our work with the neighborhood where off site landscaping will take place.

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  

Current Status

Aquarion Water Company has been working on the construction of the first of two new storage tanks in Westport. At the close of 2020, we have built and poured the concrete foundation for the first tank. The specialty wall sections of this first tank are in the process of being poured.
