Aquarion Water Company today announced a water main cleaning project in Greenwich from Sunday, July 29 through Friday, September 7 between 9:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m. The water main cleaning project is being undertaken to ensure that customers continue to receive the highest quality water.

The Greenwich water main cleaning project is estimated to last approximately six weeks. During that time, customers may notice drops in water pressure and some 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 tap water in their refrigerators for drinking and cooking.  Customers should also refrain from washing laundry if water is discolored.  Before resuming use, customers should run their cold water faucets until the water appears clear.

The Greenwich cleaning schedule is 9:00 p.m. to 5:00am. The areas that will be affected by the water main cleaning project are:

Week of July 29
