Crew to work in Mystic as part of water main replacement project
Mystic — Aquarion Water Company announced a crew will be working from midnight Wednesday to 8 a.m. Thursday at the intersection of Route 1 and Pearl Street as part of its water main replacement project, according to an alert from the company posted on the Groton Town website.
"We thank you for patience as we work to complete this project," the alert states.
The project to "replace 8,150 feet of water main" is "part of an ongoing program to improve Aquarion's water distribution system and to ensure the highest quality water," according to the announcement. The project began in March. The project schedule called for work to take place on Gravel Street in March, Clift Street in April and Pearl Street in June, along with additional work slated for Bank Street and Academy Lane beginning in July.
"During the project, customers in the area may experience temporary service disruptions or discolored water," the announcement states. "Aquarion recommends customers store water in their refrigerators for drinking and cooking in case these circumstances arise. Customers also should refrain from washing laundry if their water is discolored. Prior to resuming use, customers should run their cold-water faucets until the water appears clear."
