Aquarion Water Company will begin a water main replacement project on Sound Beach Avenue from Shore Road to St. Claire Avenue in Old Greenwich.
Scheduled to begin Oct. 7, 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 6-inch and 8-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. Aquarion recommends customers store water in their refrigerators for drinking and cooking in case these circumstances arise. Customers also are advised that they 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,” Aquarion’s Director of Engineering & Planning George Logan said in a statement. “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.”
