Aquarion work to begin Monday

drinking waterA key part of Aquarion Water Company’s work in town is scheduled to begin this coming Monday with the replacement of a water main on Sound Beach Avenue.

The work on the main street of Old Greenwich’s business district is scheduled to begin on Oct. 7 and will involve the main being replaced on Sound Beach Avenue from Shore Road to St. Claire Avenue.

According to Aquarion, the work on Sound Beach Avenue is expected to be completed by early November. The project will replace a total of 1,950 feet of six and eight-inch cast iron water main with 12-inch ductile iron main as part of the company’s improvement plan to increase fire flows in the areas.

During the project, customers in the area may experience temporary service disruptions or discolored water.

Because of this, Aquarion recommends customers store water in their refrigerators for drinking and cooking in case these circumstances arise. Customers also should refrain from washing laundry if water is discolored. Prior to resuming use, customers should run their cold water faucets until the water appears clear.

Due to construction, minor traffic issues and detours may also arise.

“We greatly appreciate residents’ patience during this project,” George Logan, Aquarion’s Director of Engineering & Planning said in a press release. “We will work closely with our customers, contractors, and town officials from the highway, wastewater, and traffic operations departments to coordinate the work and minimize disruption.”

Customers with project-related questions may contact Steve Glowa, Aquarion’s Pipeline Program Coordinator, at 203-362-3061.

For service or water-related issues, people should contact Aquarion Customer Service at 800-732-9678.
