Aquarion Water Company will begin a water main cleaning project in Greenwich on Monday, April 1. The work will continue until Friday, June 14.
In a relaese Aquarion said 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 11 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.
Below is a listing of the general area where the water main cleaning will take place each week. A detailed street list will be updated daily on the water main cleaning hotline at 1-800-203-7000 and on www.aquarionwater.com under Alerts and Outages.
