MONROE, CT — Aquarion Water Company’s water main replacement project on Purdy Hill Road is scheduled to begin Monday, Oct. 10. The work, between 165 and 192 Purdy Hill Road, is expected to be completed by the end of December 2022.
Final paving, which will be scheduled in coordination with the town of Monroe, is expected to be completed by May 31, 2023.
The project will replace approximately 770 feet of water main. It is part of an ongoing program to improve Aquarion’s water distribution system and ensure the highest quality water, according to the company. The infrastructure upgrades will also help to reduce leaks and water main breaks that can cause service interruptions.
“We greatly appreciate residents’ patience during this project,” said Justin Xenelis, Aquarion’s manager of utility programs. “We will work closely with our customers, contractors and town officials to coordinate the work and minimize any disruptions.”
Due to construction, customers should expect minor traffic delays and possible detours during the working hours of 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Danbury-based David Tinker Excavation will serve as the contractor for the water main replacement project.
