Water main cleaning scheduled to take place in Bethel October 19 through November 6
Aquarion Water Company today announced the launch of a water main cleaning project in Bethel’s Chimney Heights System. Scheduled to begin Monday, October 19, 2020, the project is expected to be completed on Friday, November 6, 2020. The water main cleaning project is being undertaken to ensure that Bethel customers continue to receive the highest quality water.
The project will last approximately three weeks. During that time, customers may notice 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 water in their refrigerators for drinking and cooking. Customers should also refrain from washing laundry if water is discolored. Prior to resuming use, customers should run their cold water faucets until the water appears clear.
“We appreciate customers’ patience as Aquarion works to complete the water main cleaning project,” said Kevin Lott, Aquarion’s Manager – Distribution.
Water main cleaning will take place Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. For questions, please call Aquarion’s Customer Service Center at 1-800-732-9678.
